REPORT: Shocking malfeasance from Orange County Clerks of Court

We DEMAND that Governor Ron DeSantis immediately assemble an investigative Commission on Florida Guardianship which includes families and victims who have experienced the abuses that emanate from this fatally broken system report to the Governor within one year with recommendations and legislation to fix this scandalous crisis and finall protect the citizens of Florida.

This damning report from Orange County, FL Auditor Phil Diamond at https://www.occompt.com/download/Audit%20Reports/rpt489_2.pdf is a shocking indictment of the entire guardianship apparatus in just one county (of 67!!) in Florida.

Imagine what the massive rest of the state looks like!

Every single aspect of the system that is supposed to track cases and prevent abuse is dysfunctional. Every intended check and balance is broken. The entire system relies on low level, poorly trained, unsupervised and poorly paid assistants to sort through massive amounts of paperwork in every guardianship that decides the fate of thousands of Wards every day. Their reports are all that the court ever gets on existing cases and more often than not, the information is wrong, missing, incomplete or just fictional falsifications from the guardians who know they will never be called to task for their lies and acts of commission and omission.

This is a disgrace and a scandal.

We DEMAND that Governor Ron DeSantis immediately assemble an investigative Commission on Florida Guardianship which includes families and victims who have experienced the abuses that emanate from this fatally broken system report to the Governor within one year with recommendations and legislation to fix this scandalous crisis and finall protect the citizens of Florida.

  1. I am experiencing the same problem with my sister, who lives in Washington,DC.
    At one time she had 13 properties plus her house on Capitol Hill. How it all started was a “so call friend of hers, a Real Estate Broker had her to sign over a house across the street from her, when she saw people working over there she became very anxious and upset! I found out that she had signed over the property to her friend! I filed a petition in the DC Superior Courts and a Guardian was assigned to her. That’s how it all started. Her properties are being sold, with the Judge’s permission. Nothing was being done for my sister. She didn’t have a daily, free food plan from the Department of Aging, which I was able to get. No medical visits after I had informed them that she had not seen her doctors since 2008! I am told that she wants her independence and they will honor that. My sister only paid her bills when she received a cut off notice. Therefore all of her taxes, condo fees and etc. was in arrears. The conservator has been able to get the bills paid and selling her properties as fast as he and the gaurdian can. The Gaurdian charges $300.00 an hour and the conservator,$275.00 hourly. I stopped calling or talking to them. Now I always email all of my communication and print out all of the emails. I told the guardian that I needed to shop for personal items for my sister and she said,” Send me the list and I will do it!” I told her ,” No, you change $300 to shop and I shop for free.
    Please help me with my sister. She is in need of medical help! She is very forgetful and can’t remember family members names or who cane to her house or what they were doing there. Help! Help!
    Thank you 😊
