Thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com with your question. I will provide legal information related to your question.

 

You can hire an attorney and sue to get appointed guardian of his estate and of him so that she can not have any control. But you have to get a doctor to testify that he is not competent and that his decision to put her on his accounts was made when he was not able to make such a decision.

i kind of knew this but most lawers want take the case because of the doctors and all. what type of lawer should i look for.
Expert:  legaleagle replied 3 years ago.
There are elder law or guardianship attorneys that you can hire.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
is this also considered elderly abuse as well.
Expert:  legaleagle replied 3 years ago.

Technically it could be abuse if he is being defrauded or manipulated.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

i need to know all options. He has a pasemaker behind his heart. his heart has been week for 20 years. He has to have oxygen when he sleeps. If this girl knows about and has sex with him would this be used as attemmted murder. can this be used as well.

She refuses to meet the family. Told him we would try and kill her. this is fraud.

how about exstortion

 

Expert:  legaleagle replied 3 years ago.
You can report her to the police and if they think it is serious enough they could issue a restraining order. But your best bet is to hire an attorney and get a court to appoint someone guardian of his estate at least. Unless you have medical evidence to show that having sex will kill him, then it is not attempted murder. It is not extortion if he is willing to give her the money.
