Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today.
Generally if you miss the deadline/date for filing objections then they are waived. However, you can ask the court for an extension of time to file objections based on the reasons you gave as well as any other reasons that you have.
Are you represented by an attorney?
First, a judge isn't going to tell you deadlines, etc. unless it is one that they impose. Technically, under the rules they aren't allowed to tell you those kinds of things.
You can have your attorney file a lawsuit against her for breach of fiduciary duty and you can consider contacting the District Attorney's office and try and file criminal charges against her.
If you do sue for breach of fiduciary duty then you can use discovery and subpoenas to get all of the information you need. In addition, the standard for breach of fiduciary duty is pretty low so it is a pretty easy case to prove if they were your guardian. I think most lawyers will tell you that suing for abuse is really not the best way to go since it has a higher burden of proof.
I am putting my standard ending paragraph below and it points out that you can ask any follow ups you have. If there is anything you don't understand I'd urge you to ask about it. In addition, once you issue your POsitive Rating the question thread locks open and will no longer time out so if you think of follow up questions later you can always come back and ask them and there won';t be any extra charge, so long as it is a follow up and not a new question area.
If your question has been answered then I'd offer my best wishes to you and ask that you please not forget to leave a Positive Rating so I receive credit for my work. Of course, please feel free to ask any follow up questions in this thread. I want to be sure that all of your questions are answered.
The most important are the medical records and bank records, but you really can't gather them until the lawsuit is filed. If you get them now you will just have to get them again after you file so that they will be admissible.
There could be others that will become apparent after you progress in the lawsuit, but those are the only ones that are obvious right now.
