    Answered . Is a guardian of the estate was appointed for your mother then there should (have been) a Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) appointed to look after your mother's interests and to be the eyes and ears of the court. Bring your concerns to the GAL, and if that fails and the concerns are legitimate, then bring to the judge.

    Answered . This sounds more complex than this forum can handle. If your mother is disabled and the guardian was dismissed, another guardian should have been appointed. The additional info discusses a GAL, but what about the guardian of the estate or of the person? Who is violating what? The trust, the trustee, the land trust, the corporation, the living will -- its absolutely unclear what is going on. Who are you in this process and what standing do you have? How are you involved in each entity discussed? Get to an attorney and they should help you sort it out.

    Answered . You state "GAL dismissed" ... implying there is no GAL anymore? I was thinking you initially wanted to get rid of the GAL who is the abuser and wanted to know how? ...but your facts presented seem to contradict each other.....so please add more info to help us help you as we are all confused as to the underlying facts.
