By Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. a New Jersey Elder Abuse and Financial Exploitation Lawyer
In cases of undue influence, a gift made by an elderly person can be challenged. Undue influence is considered to be a form of elder abuse. Undue influence is when a person places external pressure on an elderly person, so that the elderly person will do something that the other person wants. Given that undue influence can be a complicated matter, it is difficult to prove in court. Therefore, an experienced elder law attorney is necessary to prove that undue influence occurred.
Undue influence can come from a person who is considered to be “responsible” for the elderly person. If you have reason to believe that a caregiver pressured an elderly person to give a gift, or anyone for that matter, then you may be able to challenge the gift in court. An experienced attorney can help you in these matters.
Undue influence can be in the form of an elderly person being sweet-talked into giving large gifts, or other forms of external pressure. Elderly people are vulnerable, so they easily succumb to pressure. The majority of elderly people who are abused in cases of undue influence are not dementia sufferers, but they are just people whom are susceptible to such scams.
