We have had a really big fight on our hands. Some family members were taking major advantage of an elderly family member's financila comfort. He is finally seeing what we have been warning him about. FINALLY!!
Problem...One of the ones taking advantage is power of attorney. He is of sound state and mind. I suggested he find someone to appoint that is not in any way shape or form a family member or family friend.
What exactly are we looking for? A lawyer? Financial advisor? I am at a loss. He is ready to fix this before his health begins to fail. He does have some health issues but nothing major as of yet. We get his results back for some tests very soon. He wants the this taken care of, or at least put in motion, before we get test results.
Any suggestions? Please keep in mind he was worth two million dollars and they have dwindled him down to $150,000. This needs done.
Before you ask...we fought tooth and nail to get people in the family to hear us out on this. We were dubbed the liars until yesterday. Please any suggestions welcome.
