The Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers have formed a task force to study the status of current guardianships and offer “positive legislative recommendations” leading up to 2022 Legislative Session.

“Clerks of Court have a significant responsibility to ensure our services effectively support the guardianship process,” said Tara. S. Green, FCCC president and Clay County Clerk of Court. “As part of our commitment to residents, we are constantly reviewing ways to improve upon our practices, and we look forward to joining our partners on the Guardianship Improvement Task Force to review improvements across the entire system.”

Pinellas County Clerk Ken Burke will chair the task force and said the guardianship process is instrumental in ensuring the protection of the vulnerable in communities throughout the state.
