what if anything should they do at this point?
Expert:  Irwin Law replied 10 months ago.

They will have to hire an attorney to force your sister to do what she was authorized to do with the money. Unfortunately, you have no standing to take action, so it is up to one or both of them to get the local legal help they need.
