Good afternoon. Thanks for using JUST ANSWER. I'm truly sorry to hear about this situation. What you describe sounds like it could qualify as "elder financial abuse". Montana has a specific statute that deals with cases like yours. It also has adult protective services, and I urge you to get in touch with someone there as soon as possible. Here is their contact information: http://dphhs.mt.gov/SLTC/APS.aspx. Please call them before you try to do anything like file lien claims or the like without first consulting an attorney specialist in elder law cases.

I hope that you will enter a positive rating for my assistance here by clicking on 3, 4, or 5. There is no additional cost to you. Thanks again for using JUST ANSWER.
