My uncle has cut my 90 year old grandmother off from our whole family. We all believe he has done this to gain all control of her money. He has no money hasn't had a job in forever but he is the one who has taken care of her for the past five years. He lives the closest and took it upon himself to care for her which we all appreciated, until slowly she cut us off because of lies he's telling her. He has made it to where she hates us all cause he tells her we will put her away and he's the only one who will take care of her. I found out in December that he had taken her phone and TV out. I called him and told him I wanted to see her he said no so I said we will see about that. So from that day on he has now moved in with her. I wrote on her a few months ago and got a couple responses and I did as suggested. I called APS, and they said I had a case worth checking out but that was the end of it. Apparently even if you report it the findings are confidential. I didn't have enough information for them to really do anything. Since I don't know her financial situation or her medical history they said it would be hard for them to do much but they would check into it. Never heard back. So I then hired a lawyer who told me that same thing. But I hired them anyway to send a letter asking my uncle to please allow our family to talk to her and see her.
None of us want her money but him. So he got a lawyer and told him all these lies that I am the only threat to her and that he has power of attorney and we still have to get his permission to talk or see her. I was the closest to my grandmother my whole childhood she was my second mom. I ran into some trouble and was out of the picture for sometime and then moved to another city. But I still visited but by then he was already taking some control of her. I have a great life a new child who she has never got the chance to get to know. I don't have a ton of money I work everyday have a home that's paid for a new car but he has all her money to fight this fight with and I don't know what to do. I can't give up on her and let her live out her final days without any of her loved ones with her but I don't have the 10,000 to put up for a lawyer who has already told me I don't have a good chance of getting gaurdingship due to the fact I'm her granddaughter and he's her son. So it makes no sense how someone can get away with deceiving someone and depriving them just so they can get all their money. It's crazy to me and I'm so frustrated and just need help or some advise please
