I was recently contacted by a friend regarding his mother's legal matter and as this matter is out of the scope of my license, I thought I would enlist the help of my AR family.
First, let me start by stating this individual resides in North Carolina and will require the help of someone in this area. With all that said, here is the break down of what I received from the email this afternoon.
A few years ago, his mother met a man and he eventually moved in with her. During the relationship, his mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and her live-in boyfriend made it difficult for them to visit her and as her Alzheimer's progressed he had the mother cahnge the legal form of ownership of the home to tenants in common. Currently, the mother is in her eighties and is incapacitated, wheelchair-bound and has severe dementia. He stated that the boyfriend has seize control of his mother's bank accounts, had his name added to her will as beneficiary, made himself the executor of the estate, and had himself added to the deed to her house.
I realize this sound like a lot, as it is for my friend in North Carolina, but any assistance will help greatly.
He is looking for an attorney and I would like to pass on a name to him asap.
