My father gave me POA for himself and my mother when he became ill. When my mother couldn't care for my father anymore, my sister was hired by my mother to come and care for them. They are currently living in a very nice rental home. My sister is ...
You have several options here, but I suggest you get to a lawyer quickly. Now that your sister has a POA she has the legal authority over and access to your mother's money. If your mother is incapacitated, you need to have a conservatorship established which would invalidate the POA your mother gave to your sister and put a conservator in charge. You could apply to be the conservator. Act quickly on this one.See question
Need guidance…my husband went through a spinal cord stimulator procedure March 12th, to help relieve the pain he suffered with Arachnoiditis. During that procedure, the Dr hit his spinal nerve not once but 2 times, which immediately caused the wor...
Based solely on your email, this sounds like a strong case, however, I think you need to talk with a lawyer as soon as you can. Ultimately another doctor with similar qualifications will have to look at the medical records and tell you if the doctor at issue breached the standard of care bu hitting the nerve. A medical malpractice doctor can help you with that. Find a good medical malpractice lawyer and go sit down and talk with him/her.See question

This all depends on the precise terms of the disability policy. You need to obtain a copy of the actual policy and review it carefully.See question
The sister has since sold the property and kept everything for herself. She said my husband owed her money, but has not shown any proof. Does the money go to her or myself and my son. She has no intentions of sharing with us.
You need to contact a lawyer. Based upon what you wrote in your question, you are entitled to your share of the sale proceeds. You may also have a cause of action against other individuals who may have facilitated the improper sale.See question

I opened probate on my fathers estate, not knowing he had nothing. Can I go back and stop this and just do a small estate or will I have to follow through with the entire probate process now?
Each probate judge in South Carolina will handle this particular situation differently. I would go meet with the probate court judge (or one of his staff) in Anderson and tell him/her that you have discovered that the estate has no assets and ask him/her how he would prefer you handle closing the estate. In my opinion, this is the best way to handle this.See question
Me and my brother dont talk and he was overseeing my late fathers arrangements. I think he's hidding thing's from me. What should I do
The answer to this question depends on whether or not your father had a will or died without a will. It also depends on what other assets your father owned at the time of his death. There are too many different secnarios to cover here without more information. You should probably go see a lawyer and let him/her give you some guidance.See question
My brother wants our mother to give us power of attorney. He has drawn up forms to be signed listing him as successor attorney and myself as attorney in fact. What is the difference ?
The successor attorney in fact is the person who takes over if the initial attorney in fact can no longer serve. Assuming your question is drafted correctly, the attorney in fact would be you, and if you could no longer serve (per the terms of the document) your brother would take over.
Powers of attorneys are significant and should not be given or received lightley.See question

You definitely need to contact a South Carolina probate attorney. There are not short or quick answers to your questions. However generally the mortgage goes along with the real property unless otherwise specified in the will. Again I would encourage you to consult an attorney.See question
