My sister isolated my Dad. She would not allow him to visit me. She hid him when I came to bring him home with me for a week or so. 4 years before he died, she seemed to "force" him to do what she wanted. He signed over all his assets and assigned her as his executor. She never followed his instructions after his death. Can I prosecute her now? I think she may have abruptly removed his "blood thinner" Coumadin and took him to "other doctors" that did not know him. Since he died she has done nothing with his bills, assets, etc, except spend money like she is a millionaire. Now she is in jail for 12 felony charges and is facing serious time. Can we prosecute her for "neglect" or for anything!

Has it been over 7 months since dad passed? It's customary in some places to wait that long before disbursing any remaining assets. Regarding the criminal charges, good luck. You would need a tremendous amount of proof and documentation to get anything done about that, and considering she's facing so many other felony charges, I doubt they'd fool around with adding this to that pile. Hopefully for you, they will find her guilty and lock her away. You've already been given good advice about what to do about the lingering debts and unsettled financial matters.

DeNeice, unless you have hard evidence regarding any type of health care neglect, it would be very difficult to prosecute your sister.

Check with an Elder Law attorney to see if there is anyway of getting your Dad's assets back into his estate to pay the bills, and see what can be done regarding your sister's neglect to follow your Dad's final instructions.
