20 yrs down the road? After seeing what has happened to a friend and her husband, I am trying to learn what I can do to protect my husband and self. I know the court was acting as they thought was right, yet the appointed guardian made statements in private which could not be proven, statements to show that it was a matter of grabbing an estate. And the accusations laid to obtain the emergency guardianship were later shown to be false. Still it's all settled now. And I see it's not all for the better. And I think what can we do? I believe in our children yet so did our friends believe in their child. I wonder what safeguards there are - not only to protect one from their loved ones - also from the legal system or it's manipulation by others. Money is always an object - having it or not can decide way too much.
