We have been taking care our 72 years old aunt (paternal side) for the past 10 years + ever since our father passed away. Prior to that, our aunt lived with our uncle (father's elder brother) in an Orchard. They abandoned our aunt at the orchard when they moved to their new house. This matter was brought to our family lawyer. There were pictures and documents to proof this.

Our aunt inherited sum of money from our grandfather. Due to her inability in managing the fund (she's having depression and is under medication), it was agreed upon our father and our uncle that both of their lawyer will held half of our aunt's fund. The fund will be then withdraw for our aunt living expenses from both sides (50:50) in monthly basis. There was no condition being set that fund will only release under certain circumstance. It was a mutual agreement written down black n white by both sides lawyer.

Due to work, we are unable to take care of our aunt 24 7. We also do not feel safe to leave her alone at home with a maid due to her depression, therefore, our aunt was sent to old folks home. Having said that, there is no fund release from our uncle's lawyer from day 1. They starts to set conditions every time when asked to withdraw fund from their lawyer, such as they want to see our aunt living condition only release the money.

Our questions:
(1) Do they have legal rights to force our aunt under their care because we place our aunt in old folks home? It is very clear that they are after her money instead of her wellbeing.

(2) If we allow them meeting our aunt and looking at her living condition, is there any legal precautions we should be aware of?

Any advice or input is very much appreciated. Thank you.

What is there to hide.  Don't hide.  Let everybody meet her.

What I want to know is if they have rights to force her under them, all the her belonging will under their care. hence, afraid something will be happen on my aunt after that.

We wish to seek for more opinion other that the lawyer.

What did the two lawyers advised?
They do not have sole rights
Neither does your part

You want Public Opinion?
Here is this...
Your party could be the one after her "belongings".
