Misappropriation of Assets (Lifetime Transfers)
Sometimes after a decedent dies, it is discovered that substantial assets have been misappropriated by a family member or caretaker.
The person may have been elderly or infirm and placed their trust in the person who transferred their assets.
This is similar to undue influence, but it does not involve a will or trust, but actively taking the decedent’s money while the decedent is still alive.
