As the only direct descendants the guardian should give information. At least you should leave your data in order to be contacted if necessary.
However, while your aunt is alive, her assets have to be used to pay for the nursing home. It is pure speculation whether something will be left when she passes away.
But, as her only family is there a way for us to bypass the guardian. Our aunt has some cousins in Germany that we feel may be working hand in hand with the guardian. It is illegal for them to do this I know; but for money people do just about anything.
I appreciate any information.
Is it a professional guardian?
You should make sure that he and the local Amtsgericht know about your existence. So, you cannot be bypassed that easily.
Yes she is a professional guardian.
As for the local Amtsgericht; would that be the one located in the same town as her nursing home?
In this case I don't think it is very likely that she will do unlawful things risking her career. Make sure that she knows about your existence.
She does know about us and we have exchanged email in the past.
