I am the eldest son of two sons and a daughter of my widowed mother. My mother is suffering from memory loss and not able to take any decisions on her own. She owns four properties in her name with no loans. She gets a dependent pension ( my father was a government employee) & a rental income. She signs with difficulty to anyone who asks in any documents. My younger brother and sister are not personally taking care of her but employed a caretaker and living far away. They do not allow me to take care of my mother because the original property documents are in my custody given long back by my father. I fear that my siblings or relatives or family friends may misuse her money and swindle her property because they could get a duplicate copy of those documents and my mother signs without any knowledge of the consequence. I fear she may be thrown away after getting her wealth. My first concern is to legally become her guardian to take care of her physical and financial health. Moreover, her condition is going to deteriorate gradually and I want myself to become her legal guardian until her demise. Moreover, I don't know if I can give permission to my siblings to register her property in this mental condition. The motive of my siblings is property alone. I need to take my mother under my care and want to safeguard the properties of my mother with the court to avoid fraudulent transfer by anyone. I also wish the court to partition the properties among our three siblings after the demise of my mother. Kindly guide me.
