    There are two types of power of attorney that may apply in this situation, one permitting the father to give his daughter the authority to act for him in regard to financial matters, and one giving his daughter the authority to make health related decisions for him. In order for the father to give his daughter either type of power of attorney he must have the capacity to do so. Maryland has statutory forms (standard forms which carry certain protections which are written into the law) for...

    There is not just one financial power of attorney form. Maryland does have a Statutory Form Personal Financial Power of Attorney which is quite comprehensive, but it does not cover every power that your son may wish to grant to you. Some attorney’s add powers to that form, or have the client execute a second power of attorney that deals with additional powers. If you will only be dealing with managing your son’s personal banking, paying his bills, and managing other routine transactions...

    There are several stages in the process of applying for Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The first stage is the initial application. This can often be done without the assistance of an attorney. If you are fortunate enough to be awarded benefits at this stage you will have avoided paying attorney fees.

    In order to become your brother's guardian you will have to file a petition for the appointment of a guardian. You will have to prove by clear and convincing evidence that your brother requires a guardian. The fact that he has a mental illness is not enough to prove that he needs a guardian. Among other things you will have to show that your brother lacks sufficient understanding or capacity to make or communicate responsible decisions regarding his person, and that no less restrictive means...

    In Maryland, if you die without a will, and if you have no surviving spouse, then your assets will normally be inherited by your children, subject to the claims of your creditors. If your daughter is your only child, and you have no creditors, then the assets should pass to her. That process may not be quick, and it may be some time before the boxes you have packed for her come into her possession. If you only own a few things of value, and if they are not valuable enough to trigger a gift...

    Your husband can execute a limited power of attorney which authorizes you to act for him in regard this specific transaction. If properly drafted the limited power of attorney should only only authorize you to act for your husband regarding selling your home, and should not grant you any other authority. It is not uncommon for one spouse to be away when documents related to the sale of property must be executed. Your realtor may have a form which your husband can use, or your husband's...
