We Assist Florida Families In Resolving Contested Guardianships

As your loved ones age, it can be difficult to confront the realities of their diminishing health or ability to care for themselves. For many families in Oviedo and throughout Florida, there comes a point when it becomes imperative to take legal action to look after and protect your loved one's personal and financial interests.

Compassionate Counsel When Navigating Life's Delicate Moments

At Cloninger & Files, Attorneys at Law, our practice is primarily devoted to helping elderly clients and their families make intelligent legal decisions regarding future planning. An important aspect of our services is the matter of guardianships. Depending on the circumstances, guardianships can be incredibly sensitive; both for concerned family members as well as those who may be in need of additional oversight.

In some cases, a dispute may arise if an older loved one believes that he or she can continue to make his or her own decisions regarding finances, property and other matters. In other instances, one family member may disagree on who should be named the guardian of an aging loved one. Regardless of the circumstances, these matters can be incredibly divisive and emotionally charged.

Some of the most common types of adult guardianship disputes we handle include:

  • Helping guardians understand and uphold all their legal responsibilities
  • Representing guardians who may be challenged by another family member
  • Representing family members or others who wish to object to a guardian's actions, abilities or motives
  • Representing adults who believe that they can care for themselves and do not need the oversight of a guardian

We take pride in the personal service that has been at the heart of our practice for more than 35 years. As your attorneys, we can help you make sense of your options, help you keep emotions in check and take appropriate action to ensure your loved one is protected.
