Who can file for an elder abuse protection order?

You can file for yourself if you are an elderly person who has been abused. If you are unable to file for yourself, the following people may do it:

  • a court-appointed guardian or temporary guardian;
  • a court-appointed conservator, which is someone who is legally responsible for someone else’s financial or medical decisions;
  • someone acting under power of attorney;
  • a health care proxy; or
  • an “interested person,” which is defined as someone who asks the court to:
  • safeguard your money and property (estate);
  • use your estate to take care of your needs; or
  • do something else for your benefit.1
