F.S. 744.3125
744.3125 Application for appointment.
(1) Every prospective guardian must complete an application for appointment as guardian. The application must list the person’s qualifications to serve as a guardian.
(2) A person may not be appointed a guardian unless the person discloses in the application form the names of all wards for whom the person is currently acting as a guardian. The application must identify each ward by court file number and circuit court in which the case is pending and must state whether the person is acting as the limited or plenary guardian of the person or property or both.
(3) This section does not apply to corporate guardians other than nonprofit corporate guardians or to public guardians.
(4) Nonprofit corporate guardians must file quarterly with the clerk of court disclosure statements that contain the information required under subsections (1) and (2), rather than filing a guardianship application with each petition to be appointed guardian.
