The Weaponization of Guardianships (Part 2)
Although the Florida Guardianship Act is supposed to shield the elderly and other vulnerable members of society from exploitation, it can be used as a sword by the unscrupulous. In this 2-part seminar series, we review Florida Guardianship laws and discuss financial exposure and victimization.

In Part 1, we examined the Florida Guardianship Act and reveal real-life scenarios where guardianships went wrong.

In this Part 2, we'll have a quick review of Part 1 and discuss preventive measures to avoid having guardianship laws used as a weapon with an emphasis on how the elderly are victimized by unscrupulous or overzealous caregivers and family members. Protective strategies are also discussed.
