I have a friend who's son has been ensared in this criminal act called guardianship. At 23 years old after a motorcycle accident, he is not allowed to even see his own children. How sad is this. This needs to change.

My aunt died with no one there to be with her because the conservator chose not to tell us that she waa in the hospital. He tricked my elderly mother into putting her sister conservatorship. He had her over drugged and did not provide physical therapy. Did not take her do the dentist once in 6 or so years shebwaa under his care

A friend in California has spent years in California Probate court fighting the oversight of a family member. Due to a substantial monthly income the court refuses to let the family take control and instead continues to allow court appointed overseers drain money from accounts and behave abusively. Sadly this corrupt system continues to operate without any conscious and is in need of much oversight and restructuring.

In memory of my wonderful father.He was a veteran of WW11 & Korean war.Our father & family were railroaded into this greedy guardianship scam.By a useless lawyer & the no good probate court system.Here in Pinellas County, Fla.And the worthless guardian allowed our father.To be used & abused by his illegal wife & her greedy family.He was verbally, mentally, possibly physically abused.The guardian didn't care at all.Everytime he was rushed to the hospital she was never there.But she got paid for it.She let the other scum spend his money.It was what our parents saved.To go to their great grandkids.It's all gone now.Everytime the guardian had to to do her audit .For the court she would beg us for receipts.Because the other family wasn't giving her any of them.We have proof that she allowed our father to pay for the illegal blind wife.To have glasses that cost $4,000.It's not just the guardians here that is the problem.We need to clean out the whole stinking system.That includes the arrogant judges(jack st.arnold)-is one of them.The magistrates, the lawyers, guardians.Anyone involved with or protecting this corruption,fraud & abuse.We could still lose our family home.It's been in our family for 51years.Because of this mess & our parents had it built.To raise us in it.Before our wonderful Mother passed away.Dad & her paid it off so that we could give it to the grandkids or great grandkids.Please do something so no more seniors, loved ones.Or families have to deal with this suffering & no good greedy, disrespect.
We had spent $30,000 to try & fight this.And we went broke with no way of saving our great father from this senseless torture.He used to say that he probably would have been.Treated better if he was a POW.
My two older brothers & sister in law.They are all retired military & nobody including elected officials in Fla.cares at all.
Thank you for your time

I have seen first hand the abuse of power, when my father had stage 5 alheimers, a woman took him to the courthouse and married him for his money and the Guardian refused to anull the marriage. Judges, magistrates makes decisions on cases before hearing from family member, guardians brag about going to lawyers Christmas parties. 40 to 70 dollars an hour for what, going to court, making phone calls. Our guardian never showed up when our father had a medical emergency, us children were by his side. His children never once tried to steal his money. They call themselves professionals, I call most of them thieves. It's a racket, organized crime in my opinion.

My husband and I went through an unnecessary guardianship litigation. We had meticioulous advance directives, they meant nothing. It is the law that a least restrictive alternative be primary, with the burden put on the petitioner. The judges ignore the law.

Guardianship has became a business A business to steal money and property from our loved ones by confining them in an 8x10 room and medicating them to the point they haven't a clue whats going on in the world. Monies are stolen, property is stolen and the individual is left to fend for themselves after its all gone.. SHAME ON OUR GOVERNMENT FOR ALLOWING THIS TO HAPPEN..
