Los Angeles I need to sue my 2 brothers. The 3 of us are

Los AngelesI need to sue my 2 brothers.The 3 of us are co-trustees for my 95 year old father. Brothers had him deemed Incapacitated with an Affidavit of Successor Trustee, last July. Right after that my younger brother said the roof needed to be replaced. He sent a roofer to inspect it and the roofer confirmed it.My father's finances were low due to remodeling the kitchen ($68000) and my mother's funeral a couple years later ($23000). So I entered into a verbal loan agreement with my brothers to pay for the roof, with the money being paid back to me when my father could pay me back.Right after that, my father's condition became such that a 24/7 caregiver needed to be hired to take care of him. We sold my father's house to pay the caregiver agency $5400 per month. The house was sold for $640,000 and the money is in the bank.My brothers will not pay me the $6000. I have called, written emails, texts, etc. for months now, to no avail. Can I sue them? Since they are co-trustees to my father's estate, does it have to go thru a different court? Or Do I have to sue my father's estate or him?This is a terrible situation. Please help.

I've been staying with my aunt, taking care of her for 3 yrs

I've been staying with my aunt, taking care of her for 3 yrs now. I don't get paid, and didn't plan on staying but a few months, then finding my own place and get a part time job to pay my bills. Unfortunately, she was underweight, and had some memory problems at the time, and has progressively gotten worse. So I thought at the time, I thought it was more important to stay with her and get her in better health. She now has full blown dementia, my health is getting worse, and I've been asking for help from her children for a year. I am with her 24/7, except for 2 weeks this July, when I visited my children. Now I am ready to turn over care to her son, but they get mad and keep putting me off because they don't want to pay for her care. He says I'm lucky to being living here in a nice house on the lake and not having to work! Is he joking? I'm afraid not. Last spring she gave me her vechile, (6yrs old with 55000 miles on it, and now he is accusing me of stealing the car from her. I love my aunt and cousin, but I'm 63 and have health problems, high blood pressure from stress, A Fib, and I am bi-polar. Can you give me any suggestions?

I have an unusual question. I have been taking care of my

Hello, I have an unusual question. I have been taking care of my mother for several years. I have had a portion of her income to disburse and pay her obligations.=, i.e., dept. store accounts, credit cards, and all other bills. Two months ago, she decided to leave and relocate to my sisters amount of time undecided. My sister and I do not speak and there is no communication between my mother and myself because of this. my mothers bills still come to my address and there getting behind. Because I am not funded anymore to allocate to debtors, am I in anyway held responsible for this? Example, what if a cc company suspects foul play, such as fraud, since the accounts were all in good standing until the past 2 months and then no one is being paid now, and I am the one that did pay for her, can any legal action be taken against me?

There is a 15-year old man in Arizona whose father has been

There is a 15-year old young man in Arizona whose father has been on and off the streets with him for most of his life. The mother is living in Northern California and gave up responsibility for him when he was very young (2-3 years old). The father has multiple addictions, including drugs, alcohol and gambling. His son is a hard working young man who wants to be in school and has shown talent in baseball. Recently, in the past couple of months, the father decided to turn himself into rehab, and signed legal custody of his son over to a teacher in the AZ school system. His son is also friends and teammates with the teacher's son. The young man has been living with this family for several months now, and has a stable environment to live in. He has a room, chores, regular meals, and the ability to stay in school. Unfortunately, the father is not stable, and is showing signs of regretting his decision to remain in rehab. He has shown up to the family's home and taken the child out without notice. The family is concerned that at some point he will take the child and never return. What are the family's rights, seeing that he has signed custody over to them, until the end of the school term? Is there anything CPS can do to support this family, as they try to help this child live a healthy, stable life? The family wants nothing to do with the father, as long as he is unstable. They don't even know him. They only know the son through the friendship with their own child. This is not the first time this father has "cleaned up his act," and there is no track record to suggest that he will succeed this time. He has brothers and sisters and a mom in AZ, but none of them have stepped up to help in any way. They have enabled him in his dysfunction all these years. The only person who has done anything to support this family is my business partner, who is the child's uncle by marriage. He recently got the family to send financial support to this teacher's family, so they can offset their increased expenses. The concern at this point is the Dad and his potential to disrupt this situation.

My daddy died in 2012. My mother chose to come to my home n

My daddy died in 2012. My mother chose to come to my home n live with me. In 2012, She executed a power of atty, durable n general, for me to take care of her. I do EVERYTHING for my mother by myself. I take care of her, my six dogs, my home, laundry, cleaning, EVERYTHING. Now, right at 4 years later, ONE sister is angry because she says she can't visit "freely". My other sister has written my mother's attorney a letter on my n my mother's behalf. I also have PROOF my "mean" sister visited MOST every time she has wanted to, but I have always ASKED for a day's notice so I can make sure I'm not in middle of bathing mama or in middle of MANY other things that my mother is supposed to have done. (Walking 5 times a day, inhaler puffs 4 times day, neb treatments 2 X day, breakfast, lunches supper, baths, meds 3 times a day, her hair cutting n coloring done by me). Without going into EVERYTHING, this one sister has hired an attorney n they THREATENED that if I did not get my name off of a POD acct which my mother (without my knowledge at that time) put me on to, and send them copies of all my mother's bank statements (which my MOTHER does not want to do), send them proof of home insurance showing the ins coverage on my mother's house (she was left a life estate but she wanted to come live with me. Her house is in a bad neighborhood AND I could not take care of her at her home with all my dogs n I have had 2 back surgeries as well) that they would file for a conservator or guardianship. I got my mother an attorney. My mother took a mental evaluation and passed. My mother is happy, healthy safe n secure with me. Her doctors BOTH say her health has improved. Sunday my sister was confronted by my mother asking WHY WAS SHE DOING THIS. My mother told her u DO see me n told her that she n I both let my sister see n visit with her. My mother is very upset over what my sister is doing. They have tried to infer that my mother has dementia (she does not) n that I CONTROL my mother. (If anything my mother controls me). I'm just at a loss when I e done NOTHING but put my mother's physical and emotional well being above mine. If my mama is happy, I'm happy. The untrue, false n, in my opinion, letters that clearly are a defamation of my character....., nasty n mean letters have been going on since June 15, 2012. My mamas atty says that "they" (my sister n her atty) r crazy n she's not worried. BUT im devastated, hurt n I just don't see how so many lies can just continue. It's taking a toll on me, but I'm doing everything just as always for my mother and her house and her meds n Drs n paying her homes bills. Then of course I still have to take care of my house. Please help. I know this is jumbled information, but I'm at my wits end. Any advice would be appreciated.
