Guardians and Guardian Advocates are both given their powers through the probate court. A Guardian Advocate is a special type of guardian for persons with a developmental disability. Specifically, the developmental disabilities that qualify for a Guardian Advocate are defined in Section 393.063 Florida Statutes are as follows: retardation, cerebal palsy, autism, spina bifida, or Prader-Willi syndrome.
