I live in Minnesota...my sister lives in Wisconsin. I can't afford an attorney. Problem: My brother lives next door to our older sister and started looking after her. She has developed dementia and my bother has filed legal documents to be Guardian of her estate. He is not petitioning for her care (only her money).
Under my brother's care she has slipped and injured her knee and then 2 weeks ago "fell off her chair and broke her femur." She is now in rehab. From the beginning he will not answer the phone if we call.
My question: since the court date for Guardianship
is 2 weeks off, and the majority of the family do not want to see her return to their care..... can we step in and take over her care. We suspect neglect or abuse, or both. We also believe he is living in her home
JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And to clarify, can you tell me what paperwork has been filed?
Customer: Revised: since the court date for his filing for Guardianship is 2 weeks off.
JA: Have you talked to a laywer yet?
Customer: I talked with my sisters "court appointed" attorney but he tells me he can't give me any legal advice
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: The state that my brother has filed is Wisconsin. It states: In the matter of Wanda Marie Staples (my sister). Petition for Permanent Guardianship Due to Incompetency. Filed in Burnett County in State of Wisconsin and gives her address
