According to legal papers filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Catherine Falk claims her father "requires full-time custodial care for his health and safety," TMZ reports.
Catherine is also reportedly worried that her dad "can easily be deceived into transferring away property," and seeks to establish a conservatorship to protect him and his assets.
A hearing on the matter is set for next month.
Falk, 81, is most famous for his role as the scatterbrained detective in the long-running Columbo. He also starred in countless films, inlcuding The Princess Bride, The Great Race and It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
