Mom has dementia - the paperwork is complete.
My Sister and I want to become co-Guardians for her.
The plan is for my sister to take care of most of her finances - she is an Accountant. I would become Mom's Caregiver. Sister and I are in complete agreement. We have been told by our attorney that the Judge will probably not approve this since I live in another state (Louisiana) Mom & Sister live in Oklahoma. Sister and I are both stable and have passed all background checks. Mom wants to stay in Okla. in an assisted living home, but the funds are not available for this long term. Our attorney says that Mom's attorney is asking that I become her lone Guardian AND that I would not be allowed to move her to Louisiana. In your opinion is it likely that a Judge would not allow me to move my Mom to live with me since I live in a different state?
