In the state of Nebraska, My mother is 81 and is the sole

In the state of Nebraska, My mother is 81 and is the sole caregiver for her 81 yr old husband who has Alzheimer's.her eldest son is 56 and has lived on public assistance for decades. It has come to my attention that recently the son has been getting mom to pay for large purchases for him, several automobiles in that last year for instance, and these are just the things I know about. She does this willingly because she feels sorry for him and he is slowly taking all of their savings. Since she doesn't object, is their anything I (another son) can do to put a stop to this? Would she have to agree to it?

Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Family Lawyer can help you best. Please give me a bit more information, so we can help you best.Customer: I don't get along with my sister and I mother. My sister conspired with my mother to report that I have been stealing her money, my mother's bank statements go to her residence. They also reported that I forced the deed to be signed over to me. Years ago my mother had my deceased father's creditors going after her and for her protection it was signed over to my name. I signed, my mother signed and my sister signed as a witness. My mother has been in rehabs off and on for years and has issues with prescription pill addiction. My sister is taking care of her affairs, not me. I removed myself years ago due to my mother's abusive behavior.JA: Is there anything else the Family Lawyer should be aware of?Customer: That's the bulk of it for nowJA: OK. Got it.

In the state of California is there any law against leaving

In the state of California is there any law against leaving an elderly person (severe dementia) and totally unable to care for themselves, feed themselves, walk, go to the bathroom etc. alone at any time. I have a friend who has an elderly parent who is being left alone sometimes for several hours at night after the caregivers leave. We have been told that it is against the law and also that thought it is a bad decision to do there is no law that will hold up in court. I know laws differ in different states.

I need to gather evidence from a few agencies and could use

I need to gather evidence from a few agencies and could use some guidance... I have a situation where someone is trying to have me declared incompetent to stand trial. A little over a year ago a man found out that I was going to be a legal threat to him someday... Long story short, he took control of my mothers assets just after my father died in the form of a trust and my mother is disabled... It's a long story. But...just a few months ago I discovered 5 police reports and over 40 pages from the mental health department outlining a year long effort to obtain guardianship over me but those efforts failed miserably. Sounds crazy but it's true. So far this is all I have and I need to prove my theory by finding additional paperwork. Such as the applications for the incompetency, and anything else you can think of... Would I check with the probate offices, adult protective services? How does someone have someone declared incompetent? All I know is that there are more records out there and I must find them. I could use some direction here, thanks!
