Well Diane, that sounds downright disrespectful! I am a couple of yrs younger than your daughter and in Australia, so laws are different i presume. I would like to give the advice that you keep records of all communication between yourself and anyone who is dealing with this matter. If you have not already, get yourself some legal representation, go to your GP and get them to do relevant tests to prove you are in good mental and physical health. Make family members and friends aware of the situation, if they are not already, and ask them if they can do an affidavit containing information that they are aware of and that you are sane. That's all i can think of for now, hope it helps xoxo

Praying is fine, but God helps those who help themselves....

Go talk to your lawyer. Make sure that everything is in order and that he will be there to help you if it comes to that.
Let your doctor know what your daughter is doing so he can be sure to make it clear there are no issues with you that would merit your daughter needing to take control.

Do not back down from her.
My ex and his wife were trying soemthign similar with my in-laws... they thought they could move into the house and just take over, wait for my in-laws to die and then take over everything. My FIL put a stop to that immediately. Little does my ex know, he and his wife, and even my sister in law are getting nothing when my in-laws die... it all goes to the grand children... but not to the kids that my ex and his wife have now....they will get something, but not as much as the oldest grandchildren who are responsible and who's parents won't try to take everything from them when they get it.
It seems unfair to the newer grandkids, but their parents would try to take verything from them.... I believe that those kids will get something when they come of age, so that it can be prevented from happening.

Good luck in all of this.... oh and if you have other kids, whom you can trust, I would make it clear to them what your daughter is trying to do and make sure they will stand on your side in all of this.

When all else fail pray,because prayer changes things. W e need to put prayer back in our homes and schools. The world is in trouble because we have turned our backs on God. God is able to do anything but fail,be encouraged..........

Legal representation and doctors reports...also, leave your grandkids out of it as much as possible, you don't want to play tug o war with them and stoop to their mom's level. If they get to a point in life where they truly understand what happend they will love you all the ore for not getting them involved and playing them and manipulating them like their mom...you'll win their love and respect in the end...

Diane, for all practical purposes and your own peace of mind, it might be best that you consult legal counsel for your estate. As for your daughter turning your grandkids against you, you might have to turn it around in your favor so you can find out what she's up to and at the same time, you'll have your grandkids on your side. But, do not try bribing them, though, if greed is the ulterior motive.
