Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
My wife and I both eighty years old [Her to months older] She was Diagnosed with Dementia about a year ago.It was all set up by two women that called themselves her nieces. [no Blood relation at all]They flew her to Indiana and took her to the Chase Bank and had their names put on her Bank accounts. I got an attorney for [$5,2oo,oo dollars] to look into it and its been a year now and I have not heard one word from her.In the meantime These women keep calling my wife or [vica versa] and giving her instructions on how to confound me.[create problems,be contanckerous]I guess in the hopes I will have a heart attact. Lately my wife has been coming up with bumps and bruises[probably by their direction] and I'm afraid,at some point it will be blamed on me. We have been married for twenty nine years and until these women tried to get into her money,we had no problems.Question!! How do I protect myself from an abuse charge? there is only the two of us here.Should I call the police and have them to take a look at her?I can't get hold of my attorney,she won't call me back. Please Help......Charlie XXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX...XXX-XXX-XXXX...cellXXX-XXX-XXXX...Thank you,......Charlie
