My dad suffered a brain injury due to years of alcohol abuse and is now in an assisted living facility against his will as he was deemed a danger to himself, my mom is living in the family home which she owns half of. My mom was my dads Guardian however she wanted to divorce him and in order to do that she had to resign as guardian(conflict of interest crap she was told). so the next person on my dads will was appointed guardian however he took his time doing shit and died unexpectedly before he finished the divorce.
After he died his 2 kids were offered to become his guardian, (i declined due to health problems of my own) and the other one lives out of country, however my moms sister and her husband asked if they could become his guardian to make sure his money was not abused and stayed safe for his kids when he died ,so i let them.
Their first act as his guardian was to cash in his kids registered education plans which my dad took out years ago( yeah that sure is helping his kids)... now for the divorce part.
In order to finish the divorce the house had to be settled, my mom wanted to get his half of the house in the divorce because he cant live in it on his own and has not lived in it in 8 years. however his guardian( my moms own sister) would not budge, so my mom offered to buy my dads half based on the value of the house of the house when he had to leave it which was 88,000 however they declined that offer as well.
Now in this process my mom made a very big mistake , when she first went to her lawyer to file for divorce which was in 2012 her lawyer told her to pick a date when she thought it was over or something with out fully explaining to her the ramifications and they agreed to pick the time he went into the nursing home (2009). When it should have been the time she signed off as his guardian(2012) As the income taxes were filed as married still at the time and she was hoping he would get better in the nursing home.
Now after declining my moms offer to buy the house for the value of what it was in 2012 my moms sister is trying to sue her saying that their is discrepancies in my dads cost of living( the nursing home) and the money that was taken out of his account for 2009-2012,( a joint account at the time) saying he is missing around $60,000+ even though they were still fucking married, my mom was still acting as his wife at that time, giving money to his kids if they needed it, using it on the house/yard as well as using it to pay back the bills that they ran up from being a married couple for over 30 years because she thought their was a slim chance he might get better in the nursing home. my moms sister is also trying to sue her saying that my mom should have been paying rent . my mom has no way to prove anything because it was so long ago, she was sometimes using her money to pay the bills, and other times she was using his money to pay bills, they brought up about $6000 being taken out which was a wedding gift to their daughter.
In 2012 when she signed off as guardian the only thing my dad has contributed towards the house is paying half the property taxes. as if living with an abusive alcoholic was not enough you gotta love shit family members who take the abusive alcoholics side. as for my dads wishes due to his memory he is living 15 years in the past and has no memory of his drinking, always calls wondering why his kids don't talk to him much, and always begs to come back home and that he does not even want a divorce etc... my mom just wants to move on with her life, cant afford the lawyer cost, and all this family backstabing is really taking a toll on her health.
