The Guardianship Improvement Task Force was formed with the mission of studying the current status of Guardianships in Florida, with the goal of making recommendations to improve the protection of wards throughout the state.
To accomplish this goal, the Task Force will hear from many stakeholders and study current vulnerabilities. After careful consideration, recommendations will be made to improve the protection and best interests of wards. Some recommendations may be directed for action by the various stakeholders, but the anticipation is that most will be offered as positive legislative recommendations.
The Task Force is being sponsored and staffed by the Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers association.
In forming the Task Force, a wide range of points of view have been solicited by reaching out to various stakeholders and organizations that have a direct interest in Guardianship issues.
The Guardianship Improvement Task Force consists of 22 members from organizations and roles that are intimately involved in Guardianship throughout in the state of Florida. With several Judges and judicial partners, Clerks of Circuit Court, State Legislators, attorneys, state agency partners and leaders, the Task Force offers a unique and broad perspective as it works toward legislative recommendations for improving guardianship in Florida.
This upcoming meeting will be held virtually on Monday, November 1, 2021 from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., EDT.
