With the caring and knowledgeable help for which they are well-known, Marquez-Kelly Law can make the process of establishing a minor guardianship streamlined and painless. Securing a safe, secure and caring home for a minor is a process protected by federal and state statutes. A guardianship is a legal relationship assigned by the court to a person who will make decisions for the minor, considered a ward of the court. A minor guardianship is needed when neither parent can provide a safe home for their minor child – often due to alcohol or drug abuse, or other serious personal or health problems.
A minor guardianship can also be required when the minor inherits any property worth more than a certain amount of money, and neither parent is capable of protecting them or their inherited property in a manner to benefit the minor. The laws governing minor guardianship can be confusing, and best handled by a top-notch Family Law Attorney. Mellany Marquez-Kelly, of Marquez-Kelly Law, will help you cut through what can be a lengthy process and obtain the minor guardianship, in accordance with Florida law.
