Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct and prepare your response.
You absolutely need to report this as elder abuse.Your mother as financially exploited and the sister here needs to be prosecuted.The court can require the funds to be restored and a guardian for your mother appointed.Your sister here should not get away with this, she has stolen your mothers life savings.I would report this immediately and have a neutral party investigate and take action.
You have to do this for the protection of your mother and her assets.Your sister is trying to exploit her and take it all.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again , please let me know if you have more .
Your mother here or a court appointed guardian can file such a suit.You have no standing because in theory mother can change her will until she dies so you are potential heir .But certainly unless you report this and get her a guardian of her estate appointed she it risk of the sister stealing it all and you are left with nothing.Reporting this protects both of you here your mother and you.But mother or her guardian can file such a civil suit.
