I was appointed mom's legal guardian a few months ago. During the last hearing, the guardianship judge ordered my sister to "restore Ward (mom) to exclusive possession of her residence" and to "vacate and relinquish possession and occupancy of property" by June1st. I have a copy of that court order signed by the judge.
Sister still refuses to leave. Her name is still on the title. She bullied and threatened mom into signing the deed to add my sister's name while the guardianship proceedings were going on, AFTER mom had two doctor's statements saying that she was incapacitated submitted to the court.
Mom's attorney is saying that I will have to file a civil suit to restore the title to mom's name only, and then will have to wait until that is done in order to file an eviction proceeding against my sister.
But my question is, since I have a signed order from the judge already stating that my sister is to relinquish possession of and vacate the property, is another suit necessary, or can I have the police go over and get her out? We go back to court on June 11th, and I would think she would be in contempt.
I was just wondering if anyone here has any experience with something like this. Mom doesn't have endless funds to be able to keep going to court. My sister also took mom's name completely off the title to her car back in February, also while the guardianship matter was still in progress.
I was appointed guardian because my sister didn't show and would not comply with requests for bank statements, etc. so they had to subpoena them and discovered $30K missing from mom's savings in cash withdrawals my sister made (which was 3/4 of what mom had). Mom added my sister to her bank account after my sister moved in with her, and she told me she added my sister to the car title for insurance reasons, but it was listed as "Mom's name OR sister's name" so sis later took mom off completely.
I moved mom in with me after all of that and because mom told me that my sister was physically abusing her. We've finally found an IL facility that will be able to offer home health on site as well as medication management, so I'm happy about that and I think mom will like it there too, but we need to be able to get mom's furniture out, and sister has changed the locks. The last time we went over there to get some of mom's clothes, sister wasn't home and we had to call a locksmith.
