She lives in Washington State and has become indigent from others stealing over 1 million dollars of her money and property. This has, for the most part been at the hands of the Idaho legal system. Please offer to help or send us to someone who ...
The routine answer would be looking at the possibility of starting a Vulnerable Adult action, to seek guardianship so you can gain control over the affairs and then through the process demand an accounting by those who have taken your mother's money. But, in the end, this is a very time consuming affair. If you are hoping to pay someone $100,000 after they get some money returned you will have a hard time finding someone to take the case. The facts are uncertain in this case and a lot of discovery would be needed. The input from other attorneys is sage advice. The one thing I would add is find a good elder law attorney with litigation experience and then be ready to pay them hourly to investigate the case. After the investigation you would be in a better position to know if there is anything that can be cone or not. Hope this is of some help. Rajiv.See question

Sorry to hear about your mother's ordeal. I would agree that these are difficult cases and I would rather see you spend your energy in making sure that this does not happen again. That said, you may have a case depending on many facts. Many facts will need to be discovered before the viability of the claim could be established. Rajiv Nagaich.See question

Besides the general advice that is provided, have you considered the possibility of losing the home to uncovered medical or long term care costs? If your goal is to make sure that your and your husband's children end up getting the property you should make sure that you have planned around the issue of uncovered medical and long term care costs as well. Nursing home costs running at about $12,000 per month will eat into the assets quickly. The answer would be either a Will or a trust with a safe harbor trust provided in the isntrument. Upon your husband's death his share of the home will be held by this safe harbor trust which will insulate the assets from uncovered medical costs while allowing the trustee to use the assets for your needs if called for. What seems to be a simple issue is really more than that. See the assistance of a good elder law attorney and you will get good results. Rajiv Nagaich.See question
I would like to know about childcare and financial aid as when I retire I will be on a fixed income. The mother my daughter isin agreement with this.
Support for your children should not have anything to do with your income or assets as you are not the natural parent or in a position to be legally obligated to provide for the children. As such, yes, you should be able to get assistance. While you are thinking ahead, think about your estate plan and how you can incorporate provisions for your daughter and your grandchildren. Use of safe harbor trusts and contingent trusts would be most useful, especially if your daughter is receiving any state assistance. Hope this helps. Rajiv Nagaich.See question
