In order to guide you to the best solution between Guardianship and Guardian Advocacy, we need to understand the diagnoses the adult with developmental disabilities has. The below diagnoses may qualify for Guardian Advocacy under Florida law:
This disability needs to have manifested before the age of 18 and constitute a substantial handicap that can reasonably be expected to continue indefinitely.
Does the adult with developmental disabilities have one of the above diagnosis?
Having one of the above developmental disabilities diagnosis qualifies the adult for an abbreviated approval process, called Guardian Advocacy. If you select "Yes, take me to Guardian Advocacy" you will be taken to pages explaining Guardian Advocacy.
Regardless of whether they have the diagnosis, they still may qualify for Guardianship. If you would prefer to know more about Guardianship, select that option to learn more.
