California has a rich body of law to protect elders (defined as anyone aged 65 or older) from the devastating effects of financial elder abuse. California elder abuse laws can also be used to correct an ill-gotten estate plan and allow assets to pass to the rightful heirs of an estate.
A caretaker, friend, neighbor or family member with bad intentions can slowly gain control of an elder’s necessities of life, medication, and financial accounts. Isolation, lies, mis-use of trust, threats of abandonment combine to coerce an elder into handing over money and property. In the worst of cases, new estate planning documents are created benefiting the bad actor and disinheriting the rest of the children or family.
