Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Good morning. I am Loren, a licensd attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Are you planning to seek guardian or conservatorship of your mother? Is she incapable of managing her own affairs?
Unless you are her court appointed guardian, or have been given her power of attorney, you have no inherent legal right to your mother's private information (any more than any member of your family has a legal right to your private financial or medical information).
If you believe she is being abused or taken advantage of then you can report it to the police and the the local family services dept.
Otherwise, her affairs are her own to share or withhold at her own discretion.
I realize this is probably not the answer you were hoping to receive. Also, please remember that this is not necessarily a moral judgement on my part. As a professional, however, I am sometimes placed in the position of having to deliver news which is not favorable to a customer's legal position, but accurately reflects their position under the law. I hate it, but it happens and I only ask that you not penalize me with a bad or poor rating for having to deliver less than favorable news.
Are you online with me?
