  • In 2012-2013 my 80 year old grandmother sold everything she owns to move to Yuma, Az to live with her now husband. He has lived in Az for a few years. Now that he has depleted all of her money and she is ill he now wants to dump her off in a nursing home and move to Canada. What is your state laws on this? I believe if this is allowed to go on in the state of AZ this man will continue to do this to other seniors if he is allowed to get away with this. He has moved her across the country away from all family only to dump her at the state's expense so he can drive back and forth from Yuma to Canada as he pleases!
