Elder Financial Abuse

     California law (Welfare and Institutions Code section 15610.30) states that "financial abuse" of an elder or dependent adult occurs when a person or entity does any of the following:

 

   (1) Takes, secretes, appropriates, obtains, or retains real or

personal property of an elder or dependent adult for a wrongful use

or with intent to defraud, or both.

   (2) Assists in taking, secreting, appropriating, obtaining, or

retaining real or personal property of an elder or dependent adult

for a wrongful use or with intent to defraud, or both.

   (3) Takes, secretes, appropriates, obtains, or retains, or assists

in taking, secreting, appropriating, obtaining, or retaining, real

or personal property of an elder or dependent adult by undue

influence, as defined in Section 15610.70.

 

    Financial abuse of the elderly is a growing national crisis.  In response the California legislature has equiped family members and attorneys with special remedies that should be used to combat those who take advantage of elder or dependent adults.  If know or suspect that someone is being victimized, report it to adult protective services and hire an agressive attorney who will fight for your loved ones.   Call the Kelly Law Firm, Orange County, Los Angeles, and Long Beach Elder Financial Abuse attorneys to find out what actions can be immediately taken to protect the ones you love.
