I was appointed guardian for my Aunt when a life insurance policy matured and needed to be reclaimed. My Aunt was unable to sign or understand, and as her POA and Trustee, my credentials weren't accepted. I got the guardianship with the help of the trust attorney, but only used it to reclaim the life insurance policy which I promptly deposited into her investment account.
Six months later, my Aunt had a severe delirium episode and the doctor was adamant I move her from assisted living immediately. It took almost six weeks to find a place, but she kept having deliriums and no one would take her in the middle of one or in recovery. The preferred institution didn't have a bed, the second choice made us wait for one, which we did.
I'm alone, I work, and I went into overdrive, doing the night shift with Aunt, so she wouldn't fall and hurt herself in the deliriums, going to an ER visit that was necessary and running all over trying to find a facility and arrange moving her which required downsizing and careful planning so it was as calm and easy as possible for her. I live 60 miles from her and I burned up the highway.
When the year went by, I looked at the guardianship papers and realized I was to have informed the court ahead of time I was going to move her. I have all my paperwork ready (four days after the deadline) and am turning it in with an overview of the situation and my mea culpa.
Does anybody know what I can expect in the form of consequences?
