Miami Dade County and Broward County Guardian Advocacy Attorney
In Florida, a court may appoint a guardian advocate to carryout specific delegated rights for an adult with developmental disabilities if that person lacks the able to make some, but not all, decisions to properly care for his or her person or property, or if the person with a developmental disability voluntarily petitions for a guardian advocate. The appointment of a guardian advocate is a less intrusive and more cost-efficient way to obtain the legal right to act on behalf of a developmentally disabled person, also known as the Ward. The Ward must be at least 18 years old at the time that the guardian advocate is appointed and must have developed the developmental disability before the age of 18.
