Florida Appeals prevailed in guardianship case allowing the Mother to remain co-guardian of her child. The Appellant (the Father) petitioned to have the Appellee (the Mother) remove as co-guardian and to be appointed plenary guardian. The circuit court denied the petition, concluding that the Mother had adequately cared for the child and that removing the Mother as co-guardian would be detrimental to the child. On appeal, the Father argued that the trial court abused its discretion by failing to remove the Mother as co-guardian. The Mother argued that the circuit court’s order was supported by competent, substantial evidence. The Fifth District Court of Appeal affirmed the trial court’s decision enabling the Mother to continue as co-guardian. The case is Carbery v. Robinson, 5D22-0688.
