Boomers Beware of Guardianship and Conservatorship Abuse

2012 won't be a happy year for aging Boomers taking care of their aged parents or becoming vulnerable themselves. Even if they had planned ahead by executing advance directives and making careful estate plans, they risk being sucked into an almost secret system which feeds itself by preying upon their vulnerability.

"Guardianships" or "Conservatorships" are "protective" proceedings managed by our American justice system in state courts across the country. Without adequate monitoring and oversight, there is a growing trampling of constitutional protections and civil and human rights by the very persons supposedly protecting our loved ones.

Fiduciaries - "persons of trust" - appointed by the courts to protect those adjudicated as incompetent are thus free to engage in a feeding frenzy: aggressively overbilling the estates of their wards with unnecessary and outrageous fees until there is nothing left.

The system is out of control and running amok, contrary to original intent, which was to:

• GUARD the vulnerable person from harming him/herself or others;
• CONSERVE his/her assets through prudent investment; and
• PROTECT the taxpaying public from the person becoming a public charge.

The result of these unlawful and abusive proceedings, among other things, is that when wards’ estates bled dry by the excessive fee billing of fiduciaries, these wards are added by the fiduciary to the Medicaid rolls on the backs of taxpayers, victimizing the public becomes victimized as well – an appalling travesty of law.

NASGA was created by family members and friends of victims of so-called "protective" proceedings where court-appointed fiduciaries took control of the lives, liberty and property of their loved ones and then breached their fiduciary duty, causing extensive and expensive litigation.

See our website and the GAO report confirming our complaint: "Guardianships - Cases of Financial Exploitation, Neglect and Abuse of Seniors."

NASGA is a 501(c)(3) public benefit civil rights organization formed by victims and for victims of unlawful and abusive guardianships
and conservatorships.

In December of 2009, NASGA submitted our white paper “Protecting Our Citizens from Unlawful and Abusive Guardianships and Conservatorships” to several Congressional committees and the White House. Despite numerous studies over the years pointing to the lack of monitoring and oversight of cases, many states continue to permit due process and civil and human rights violations and fail to protect their citizenry from financial exploitation, neglect, and abuse during “protective” proceedings. NASGA provided illustrations of these problems,

Florida: October is "Guardianship Month"
Florida Governor Charlie Crist has declared October as “Guardianship Month.” NASGA would point Governor Crist’s attention to the fact that the original intent of guardianship/conservatorship law - “guard,” “protect” and “conserve” - is no longer being complied with in a frightening and growing number of cases involving court-appointed fiduciaries. Wards' estates, instead of being conserved, are being plundered in the guise of fiduciary fee billings for "services," either not
