Legal Question

Asked on: 11/26/10, 9:48 pm

My mother was going to get a divorce when the simvastatin she was taking for hight cholesterol made her get hospitalized for 2 weeks and now she can not remember anything. She can not take care of herself and she is insulin dependent diabetic along with numeous other health problems. She is 77 and her husband is 82 with a gambling problem. He had 800,000 dollars he gambled away and now he is borrowing from her. We are afraid he will let her die or at the least not take care of her. She does not want to leave him because she is child like now and says he is her husband and she is supposed to be with him. How can we get her the divorce she wanted before and needs now to come live with us?

She does not have much money left and we know he will spend it and she will give it freely to him now. Please help us. Her children have been taking turns staying with her but we all live in other states and have families we need to get back to.
