Who can terminate a guardianship?

Video Transcription:

Guardianships are terminated in many different ways. The most normal way is when the ward passes, the guardianship terminates, the final counting is filed and the guardian is discharged. When a minor turns 18 and the guardianship starts the process of termination, the assets are turned over to the 18-year-old ward and the final accounting is filed. But there is another process if you are incapacitated and you become incapacitated again. There’s a restoration process through our Florida statutes whereby you can contact the attorney that was appointed to represent you in the initial incapacity proceedings and that attorney can then file a petition to have your rights restored because you are now competent again.┬áHave any more questions?
