I live in Georgia but get up to see her every 5-6 weeks. My brother lives near her and has guardianship and power of attorney. He does not visit her very much. He took over guardianship basically by force two years ago. I reluctantly signed the papers. My mom thinks he and I are 50/50 guardians and powers of attorney, but I have explained to her that is not the case. My brother and I were getting along for a little while, but now he is reverting back to not keeping me informed of what he is doing at my mom's house. He threw away two dumpsters full of my mom's things without me, and has yet to show me the appraisal he had done of some of my mom's jewelry. He has also not allowed me to have access to my mom's medical records when I have questioned some bad bruising on her arms. My mom has some dementia but is not completely incompetent. She wants to help me with some things financially, but my brother states that he is in control of her entire estate. He said he was going to look into it for me, but is now reneging. This is what he does. He dangles a carrot and then takes it away. He is emotionally abusive to both my mom and me. What rights does she have if any, and what rights do I have as a 50% heir? Will getting an attorney help at all?
