My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: MA.
My mother abused and abandoned me at age 13, my father was unable to care for me and I was on my own this happened in the late 1960's. Due to my mother's physical abuse, neglect and abandonment I struggled with emotional/mental illness throughout my life and I recenlty have become disabled. My mother left our State and changed her first and last name. My struggles have been extensive and difficult to navigate in my life and caused significant damage financially, emotionally, physically.
My mother never provided physical, emotional, educational or financial care in anyway, a right a child has and her responsibility as a parent. However her alias's and moving made it difficult to do anything and not knowing my rights as a child. I recently have found her and she has done very well for herself and is married presently to a Harvard Phd., she has been married 3 times since my father all well to do financially, and owns a home and has assets.
Before she dies, Can I file any type of suit for damages, I relize there would be a statue, but due to my mental emotional illness, no ability to advocate for myself to find her and file suit back then and added her alias's there are several, could there be something I can do to pay for my care now ? Can I do anything to be an heir to her estate. No one in her life, her Synagoge even her husband is aware of me and I have 5 other siblings. There are 8 Grandchildren, Could I sue for them and not for myself ?
I am hopeful that I can be acknowledged at least to her Estate if not for damages for my ill life now. Can I lein her assests ? I also want to know my maternal health and history, relatives maternal side as well as if I am Jewish. Before she dies or I die, I need to do something to somehow rectify this long painful journey of a life, at least for my children, it would bring closure and responsibility she has gotton away with her whole life. Being known as her Children is Important, and holding her Responsible for her actions is Important and her Estate before it all goes to her Synagoge or someone else, who does not know of me and my siblings as well as her Grandchildren exisistance.
She resides in Macon, GA. She lives a secret life, so sad for us. Any and All responses are welcome, but I have tried my whole life to let it go and I am and have been in therapy, But I have to do something to bring Attention to this and to her and the people in her life before it is too late. I had hoped all my life she would come back to me and that is not going to happen at this point, a sad reality for me. If an Attorney that is interested could let me know or a referral to one, I would truly appreciate this help !
I am aware there could be costs any of these motion possibilities. I am hoping for responses from this Forum to help me with what direction I could take. Thank you very much !
