Guardianship Litigation

Florida Guardianship Litigation to Serve the Best Interests of Those Who Are Vulnerable

When establishing guardianship, the court attempts to make a decision that is in the best interest of an elderly or incapacitated adult by placing them in the care of a loving, responsible, and financially capable relative or loved one. However, even the most carefully arranged guardianships can be contested, often by other family members who believe the ward’s best interests are not being properly addressed. Guardianships are often challenged because of allegations of physical, mental, or financial abuse. If you and your family are embroiled in such a dispute, it is imperative to seek out the counsel of a guardianship lawyer who can help the court determine the best interests of your loved one and recover any financial losses from negligent or dishonest guardians.

End Financial Exploitation of Your Elderly Loved One with the Help of Our Florida Guardianship Litigation Lawyers

An allegation of financial exploitation is one of the most common reasons for a guardianship dispute. Sometimes financial exploitation can be committed by a stranger such as a salesperson, workman, or someone representing a false charity. Sadly, financial exploitation is most commonly committed by someone who is known and trusted by the victim such as a family member, caregiver, or someone with a power of attorney. Instances of financial exploitation include:

  • Changing a will or trust for the exploiter’s benefit
  • Stealing money or property
  • Selling property
  • Changing the name on property titles
  • Changing beneficiary designations

If your loved one has been the victim of financial exploitation, contact Wintter Law immediately. We  will set out to recover your loved one’s losses and protect the victim from further exploitation.
