Florida Guardianship Litigation Upholds the Best Interests of Those Who Are Vulnerable
When establishing guardianship, the court attempts to make a decision that is in the best interests of an elderly or incapacitated adult by placing them in the care of a loving, responsible, and financially capable relative or loved one. However, even the most carefully arranged guardianships can be contested, often by other family members who believe the ward’s best interests are not being properly attended to. Guardianships are often challenged because of allegations of physical, mental, or financial abuse. If you and your family are undergoing such a dispute, it is imperative to seek out the counsel of a guardianship lawyer who can help the court determine the best interests of the ward and recover any financial losses from negligent or dishonest guardians.
End Financial Exploitation of Your Elderly Loved One with the Help of Our Florida Guardianship Litigation Lawyers
An allegation of financial exploitation is one of the most common reasons for a guardianship dispute. Sometimes, financial exploitation can be committed by a stranger such as a salesperson, workman, or someone representing a false charity. Sadly, financial exploitation is more commonly committed by someone who is known and trusted by the victim, such as a family member, caregiver, or someone with the power of attorney. Instances of financial exploitation include:
- Changing a will or trust for the exploiter’s benefit
- Stealing money or property
- Selling property
- Changing the name on property titles
If your loved one has been the victim of financial exploitation, contact a guardianship attorney immediately. A guardianship lawyer will immediately set out to recover your loved one’s losses and bring to justice those who are guilty of exploitation.
