(c) The petition for an order requiring appropriate access shall be afforded
an expedited hearing in the circuit court.
(d) If the provider agency has substantiated financial
exploitation against an eligible adult, and has documented a reasonable belief
that the eligible adult will be irreparably harmed as a result of the financial
exploitation, the Office of the Attorney General, the Department, or the
provider agency may petition for an order freezing the assets of the eligible
adult. The petition shall be filed in the county or counties in which the
assets are located. The court's order shall prohibit the sale, gifting,
transfer, or wasting of the assets of the eligible adult, both real and
personal, owned by, or vested in, the eligible adult, without the express
permission of the court. The petition to freeze the assets of the eligible
adult shall be afforded an expedited hearing in the circuit court.
