I live and care for my aunt in her home and am her sole deputy. My brother and I do not get along. I have just received an order from COP saying he is applying to have me discharged as deputy on the grounds that I did not notify him of my application, which I did. In fact when he visited my aunt he would enquire how the application was doing. The COP said he was objecting on other grounds too. He refuses to speak to me and tell me why he has done this. I am now being asked to attend a conflict resolution hearing. I am loosing sleep, I am a single mum of a 13 y.o. daughter, looking after my aunt who is in the later stages and trying to work part-time too. - we all live together. I can not afford a solicitor. I notified all interested parties including him. I did not notify her sister who lives in New Zealand who she rarely speaks to though. He wants to be her deputy as well as a panel of deputies. This will make my life really difficult as we live with her and he will be in our lives. His actions are deliberately designed to cause me maximum problems. I feel hunted by him and now very vulnerable. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
