About Financial Abuse of Older Clients: Law, Practice and Prevention

Part of 'Bloomsbury Professional's Family Law Series', this text is written in a practical, accessible style providing analysis, comment and in-depth analysis.

It covers:
- Who is vulnerable to financial abuse
- Who the perpetrators of financial abuse are and why they might abuse
- The form financial abuse takes highlighting indicators and abuse red flags, typical actions of the financial abuser, typical losses and undue influence
- How to prevent financial abuse including coverage of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs), Deputies, gifts, wills, property sales, etc.
- The options available for practical help, for example, carers, agency appointments, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). The DBS has replaced the Criminal Records Bureau and Independent Safeguarding Authority and helps employers to make safer recruitment decisions and prevents unsuitable people from working with vulnerable people
- Practical advice on how to recover assets including via the Court of Protection, civil remedies, injunctions, freezing orders, police, social services and other watchdogs
- Future developments in relation to the Court of Protection and the Office of Public Guardian particularly in relation to mediation and investment guidance.

Filled with detailed, practical guidance and advice and drawing together case law and legislation, this is a comprehensive work written by a private client solicitor with nearly 30 years' experience that no family law practitioner or professional faced with this ever-increasing area of law should be without.

The second edition is updated to take account of:

· The impact of two pieces of legislation – Serious Crime Act 2015 and the proposed Domestic Abuse Bill which will assist the police
· Agencies that are now tightening up on protections, including the banking industry and the Personal Finance Society.
· A new chapter on grooming by perpetrators and how to prevent this.
· An additional appendix on practical examples and how to deal with the issues that arise
