Your response did not tell me how I should proceed, do not want to hire a lawyer in Mo. Is there not some agency or legal office in Mo. which would help me with this. I have pulled up all of the laws on this and I agree she did not have the authority, but I don"t know how to proceed.

Response: You have to file complaint with the Court where this Public Administrator has filed petitions and applications on behalf of the ward. I cannot tell how to file complain with the Court because it would amount to giving you legal advice, which is prohibited by the site's terms of service. Nonetheless, you can learn how to represent yourself by accessing Missouri Courts online.



As for other agency to file complaint with, I am not aware of the any agency since this is an elected office.

She and the Judge are tight - guess there is nothing to be done about that. Have tried that route in the past, she has been incompetiant in neglect of my aunt, etc. Looks like there is some agency that could help. Thank you. I


will try representing my self.

If the Judge is biased, you can file complaint against the Judge.
