Guardian

A person appointed by a judge in a special court proceeding who is legally responsible for the care of another person because that person is unable to handle his or her affairs, whether that be because of disease, disability or being under 18. Children usually only have guardians when neither of their parents are willing or able to care for them. Compare with conservator. See the Office of Public Advocacy's Family Guardian page for more information.

Question: How does a guardian obtain all the bills of a ward to make sure they are paid in a timely manner? USA, Florida--How does a guardian obtain all the bills of a ward to make sure they are paid in a timely manner? Does the guardian, if the ward is living in a nursing home, have bills that came to the ward's residence transfered to her place of business? Is the guardian supposed to put in a change of address from the ward's former homesteaded address to the guardian's mailing address?

Answer: The guardian has the bills sent to its office so that they can be paid in a timely basis. That is more efficient than having the mail change. Changes in mail addresses are good for only a limited period of time, plus it delays response by a week if mail is forwarded. Our local post office requires a court-issued certificate (certified copy of the Court Order appointing the guardian) where mail is to be changed on behalf of an adjudicated "incapacitated person." I do not think this is a requirement of federal law, but is a matter of prudence on the part of the post office management. They have a desire to see that things are handled on a proper basis.
