Establishing and Managing Guardianships in and around Northwest Florida
Many people don’t realize that setting up and maintaining a guardianship is a document-intensive process that may involve complex legal issues. The Law Office of Gary B. Leuchtman has the experience and legal knowledge to satisfy the requirements of guardianships. We represent family members of minors who can’t manage their own affairs and relatives of adults who have been adjudged incompetent by the probate court.
We assist at every stage of the guardianship:
Holding hearings to determine competence
Setting up trusts for a family member with special needs (so called “special needs trusts”)
Arranging trusts or guardianships for a minor who is a beneficiary of a settlement
Annual reporting of receipts and expenditures
Annual accounting of property and cash transactions
Discharging the guardian at the conclusion of the guardianship
Based in Pensacola, FL, the Law Office of Gary B. Leuchtman represents clients throughout Northwest Florida. We work closely with clients to timely comply with the stringent reporting and accounting requirements of Florida guardianships.
Elderly Guardianships and Minor Guardianships
Our guardianship clients are of two types: people wishing to establish a legal guardianship (whether voluntary or involuntary) and people who have been named guardians of another family member. Both roles involve significant fiduciary duties and responsibilities and seemingly endless paperwork. We can make these challenges seemingly disappear and become routine.
