Often times we view the courts and the government as entities that are there to help us in our times of need. However, that may be a false sense of security when it comes to estate affairs. Claims of estate, elderly, and other guardian related abuses by court appointed employees are becoming more evident.
For example, in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama, the former county conservator recently resigned after pleading guilty to federal offenses of not reporting crimes being committed by her law clerk. And after leaving her position it was discovered that her accounting and record keeping practices were anything but desirable and indeed had inflated her expenditures by over $100,000 between 17 of her wards. She has been ordered by a judge to reimburse many of these estates.
This should highlight that you cannot rely on the state, local, and federal governments to do what is right for your care and your estate. When you have the proper estate litigation documents in place you have the power in your hands over your own destiny and your own assets. When you choose your own trusted person or persons to handle your affairs prior to the event of an incapacitation, then the focus can be more on you, as opposed to the headaches and heartaches of mismanaged finances and criminal abuses.
Contact a professional estate litigation Attorney to set up the documents that will truly guard your money and personal property from the abuses of corrupt government employees.
