What Is Exploitation?

Exploitation is when a trusted person or confidant knowingly deprives another of property or money. The statute mentioned above covers a large range of conduct that could be considered exploitation. If an adult is dependent upon another for care, advice, or any other fiduciary role, and that person takes real or financial property from them, they are committing an act of exploitation.

If you are a vulnerable adult or someone close to a vulnerable adult who believes their guardian is exploiting them, you can seek an injunction to:

  • Prevent the guardian from contacting you (or the vulnerable adult)
  • Freeze assets or lines of credit to prevent the guardian from taking more assets
  • Seek a restraining order or other protective measures
