Florida WINGS Project-Florida Guardianship Law

For those of you from Florida, The Florida Supreme Court’s Guardianship Workgroup and Florida’s Working Interdisciplinary Networks of Guardianship Stakeholders (WINGS) will be holding a public hearing on Thursday, February 1, 2018 at the Orange County Courthouse from 4-7 p.m.  The courthouse address is 425 North Orange Avenue, and the hearing will take place in  Suite 180.  According to the announcement

Members of the public will be able to share their concerns about guardianship and to identify possible solutions for those concerns. This event will help the Guardianship Workgroup and Florida’s WINGS advance guardianship reforms and increase the effectiveness of Florida’s guardianship systems.... Speakers are asked to address one of two questions: [1] If you could make one change in Florida’s guardianship system, what would it be? OR ... [2] How can courts improve their processes to better ensure protection of the person, property, and rights of individuals who are under guardianship or who need assistance making decisions? Comments should be succinct. A time limit will be imposed.

There are other ways to make your voice heard. Another public input event will take place in February in Central Florida. Comments may also be submitted through the WINGS website: https://flwings.flcourts.org/.

The website also has a link to a 29 question survey about Florida guardianship law.  Folks can also submit comments online from the link here.
