He even had me as predeceased in my Mothers will. I want to find out how he has taken the money and where is it now. Shes only got $230,000 left and wont be able to pay her mortgage and she is on oxagen 24/7. How do we save mom from losing her home and financial stability?
i am now living wuth my mom and caring for her and her home. We have hired an accountant. My brothers wife was keeping my mom medicated and isolated. My mom was all alone in a big house it was like walking into a model home with a little old maniquin upstairs. They spent tens of thousands on furniture when my mom an artist lived what she had.why would they do this?

Did you brother draw up his own Mother's will? That doesn't sound ethical, especially if he is going to benefit from the estate.

If you mother has a large home, find out what is the market value of the house. Unless your mother had refinanced within the past few years, there should be some equity.

An attorney with no conscience is liable to have covered his tail pretty well...but hopefully not well enough to deter a sibling who actually gives a hoot of mom instead of just her money from finding out the truth and getting him prosecuted. Be careful, collect every possible bit of evidence and document document, document, but don't just sit back and watch it happen if you can help it.

Aren't we all predeceased?

My suggestion is to hire an elder law attorney.

First, call the cops, because you are still alive. Police are very good at finding people these days and this sounds like an Elder Abuse case. Next, sell the big house and the big furniture and move mom to either Independent Living or Assisted Living depending on her need.

Hire a forensic accountant. When he's finished, if a crime has been committed, take it to the State's Attorneys' office.

Maybe he knows the will says he gets all of the personal property.
