My mother and father had multiple joint Banking accounts. My father for some reason kept this one personal checking account as him being the only owner. He developed dementia in his last years of life and tardive dyskinesia secondary to the side effects of a neuroleptic drug (Zyprexia).

Will names your sister as "guardian." Perhaps you mean executor? I think I would be more worried about what is in your father and mother's estate and how to get your fair share of this, rather than weather or not you can sue a bank.
See or call a Georgia Estate attorney.
Not sure how to format the motions, I may need to file a continuance. Couldn't get an attorney (Consumer Attorney) to take my case so I'm going Pro se.

The federal litigation bar is somewhat smaller than the state bar. If you intend to represent yourself, you need to be thoroughly familiar with the federal rules of civil procedure and the local rules of the district court in which your case is pending.

Tracked their location thru the IP address, but at the time the victim didn't press charges Almost a year later could the victim decide to press charges. The amount stolen was around $2000.
answered on Jun 7, 2022
The short answer is yes. However, an important caveat is that the State (i.e., Prosector's office in the county where the alleged theft occurred) decides whether to pursue charges, not the victim. Therefore, because the amount stolen was over $500.00, the alleged thief would likely be charged... Read more »
I have notarized POA on my Dad, drawn up by attorney in 1992. He can no longer sign checks and bank won't honor POA as is. How do you certify it with court? It is a properly notarized document already.
answered on Dec 3, 2021
Your question cannot be answered without reviewing the POA to try to determine what exactly the bank might be concerned about. It is possible that the POA only becomes effective upon incapacity, and so the bank wants proof of incapacity of your father. It that is the case, you need to get a... Read more »
FINANCIAL CARD FRAUD 16-9-33
The woman charged was tricked into using it under instruction of her boyfriend who was responsible for finding my wallet
answered on Oct 3, 2021
This depends on several factors. However, contacting the prosecutor's office and letting them know that you don't want her to be charged is a first step. You can request to fill out a non-prosecution affidavit, but ultimately it is up to the prosecution to determine if they will dismiss... Read more »

I cannot argue with you since you have the paperwork for what you have said occurred. At least I would hope that you do.
Having represented a number of banks over many years, I cannot believe the bank simply turned over the funds. The bank would first need a court order specifically... Read more »
My boyfriend was incarcerated and wanted me to bail him out. So he gave me his account info to route to my account.

The phrase "If it walks like a duck; it's a duck." certainly applies here. If you truly believed it is okay to keep the money entrusted to you for another purpose, you would not be online asking your question. Of course it doesn't belong to you. What would justify you keeping the money?
Removed all contents and closes safety deposit box account out. Which included an original copy of a amended will and vehicle title. The following day, the suspended executor transferred vehicle title from the descendants name into his, providing the DMV with the same invalid court docs.
answered on Jan 18, 2021
Since you didn't ask a question, I'm not sure what you need. The facts sound horrible and the executor can easily have a judgment entered against him. I don't understand why there is a codicil to a will still floating around when the court had already issued Letters Textamentary to... Read more »

At one time she was extremely well off but over the years her health declined and no one knew what she had in accounts or banks. How can we find out if she had any bank accounts or any safe deposit boxes? There is a lot of unanswered questions about where her money and assets went over the years.

You will want to consult with a probate attorney who can review the case and help you plan the proper course of action to investigate this. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558

Yes. I am not clear on "medical consultant" but a power of attorney can include provisions to allow the agent to access medical records. It is also recommended that an advance directive for healthcare be completed as this will appoint an agent for healthcare decisions.
I canceled the cashiers check. Before I could pay them, they went to the moving broker and got my debit card information (unauthorized) and charged the amount the next day.
Is that misappropriation of funds or do I just need to reissue? I’m concerned that this is fraud and identity theft.
answered on Jan 20, 2020
It sounds as though the moving broker acted negligently towards you. If you have never authorized them to release your credit/debit card information to this 3rd party, this may be a case of fraudulent use of credit card or another offense. It is best to consult an attorney who can assess the merits... Read more »

Generally speaking, no, there are no statutes of limitations on arrest warrants or bench warrants. Typically, once an arrest or bench warrant has been issued, it remains in effect regardless of the amount of time that has passed.
However, there are limited exceptions to this. For this... Read more »

No lawyer I know will have any suggestions because your "question" does not contain enough facts and thus cannot be answered as written. Try again?
The person who deposited the check in my account forged my signature. The loan was for $901.70.
answered on Jun 25, 2019
Yes. Why? Because you are the only person who has (or had) the $901.70. Surely you do not expect any bank on this planet to eat money just because you accepted a fraudulent check? No; they are making you eat your own money.

If what you say is true, you will have to hire a probate lawyer who also knows how to litigate.

In Order to answer this Question, the attorney will need to see the actual Lease and any conversations you have with the landlord. It may be in your best interest to talk to an attorney to see what provisions are in your lease.
