Are Guardians Entitled To Compensation?

May 13, 2024
Geoff Hoatson

In the majority of cases, immediate family members are appointed as guardians, so they generally choose to serve without compensation. However, if your family decides to appoint a professional guardian, they would be entitled to reasonable compensation for their work. The court would review the guardian’s fee to determine whether it is reasonable under the circumstances. 

A person’s cognitive well-being, medical status, ability to make decisions, or ability to take care of their own needs may factor into the decision to appoint a guardian. If you’re contemplating that a loved one might need a full or limited guardian in Florida, then it’s time to consult a guardianship attorney.
