post about POA Lawsuits and Sibling Rivalry

Do you believe that your mom or dad is a victim of probate fraud in Florida? What if your evil sister unduly influenced your mom to change her Palm Beach estate plan? What if your brother forced your elderly aunt into changing her POA so that he could steal from her? Has your mentally impaired parent been wrongly influenced to make changes to his or her Florida will?

Unfortunately, Palm Beach estate lawyers frequently witness greedy children take advantage of an elderly parent. This is especially common if the elderly parent suffers from Alzheimer’s or dementia. For example, a child may convince his mom to change her POA designation to himself so that he can steal mom’s money. The child could do this by having mom change her Florida will to exclude other siblings, or by withdrawing money from mom’s bank accounts and misusing the funds. If you believe a sibling has taken advantage of one of your parents in their position as POA , you should consult with an experienced probate litigation lawyer. You may need to file a guardianship action.
