I have a friend who willing gave her daughter power of attorney two years ago. She noticed her daughter was moving large sums of money out of her accounts. When she confronted her about why, the daughter moved all her money including taking it from her purse and did a quick claim deed on her home. She then filed for guardianship. This all went down in less than 24 hours. She was required to have a evaluation, the doctor said she was of sound mind but may need help with her finances because the daughter told him to say it. The judge gave the daughter temporary guardianship(2months) so and official evaluation can be made. She has tried hiring an lawyer who wants a reserve of $3000 in advance, but she doesn't even have money for food.Other lawyers in the area want 1/3rd of the funds recovered. The one lawyer, who wants the retainer, told her he would have no trouble getting the guardianship lifted but felt the judge will want someone to manage the money for a time to be safe. She can't find anyone to do it. Who would do this and how does one find someone? This again depends on her finding the money for someone to help her. Adult protective services said they would help until the daughter got guardianship then they stopped saying it was the daughter's money now. She is of sound mind and feels the daughter is stealing the money. The daughter isn't working and recently divorced and didn't get the money she wanted.
