Pursuant to Fla. Statute 39.6221(6):
Placement of a child in a permanent guardianship does not terminate the parent-child relationship, including:
(a) The right of the child to inherit from his or her parents;
(b) The parents’ right to consent to the child’s adoption; and
(c) The parents’ responsibility to provide financial, medical, and other support for the child as ordered by the court.
Much will depend on the court order. I recommend you consult with a local attorney to discuss further and be represented through any court proceedings.
You should consult an attorney for advice regarding your individual situation since every case is different and not all information is relayed in an online question. The Law Office of Ophelia Bernal-Mora, P.A. is a family law firm located in Orlando, Florida, we invite you to contact us and welcome your calls at 407-354-5223. Contacting us does not create an attorney-client relationship. Please do not send any confidential information to us until such time as an attorney-client relationship has been established.
Congratulations on the progress that you have made thus far. I agree with Ophelia's thoughts on the matter. However, I'm not sure if I see the wisdom in consenting to your parents becoming permanent guardianship. I'm guessing that they are dangling the permanent guardianship over your head like a carrot such that if you agree to consent to it then they will continue to help you, etc. but that if you don't, then will be effectively "shunned." I hope that is not the case. I would definitely run it by and attorney, if possible (and more so than on this website!). Good luck.
