Customer Question

I have an elderly mother who is being manipulated by my sister. My sister and I dont talk and dont get along. She talks bad about me to everyone, even costed a close relationship to friends of 15 yrs who are brain washed by her manipulative ways. I do see my mother, but my mother is being controlled by my sister at times and my mother is slowly have negative feelings against me. So far I am her power of attorney and want to know what legal claims can I take against my sister? I live in Florida.

Thank you for using JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Is your mother mentally competent? Is your sister spreading lies about you, or if not, in what way is she getting your mother to have these negative feelings towards you?
