    Answered . I highly doubt that the Reclamation Reform Act of 1982 is applicable to you, unless you are a landowner in the Western U.S. and have issues with water. Rather, it sounds as though you need to sign a power of attorney for property to allow your wife to handle your finances for you while you are incapacitated. I recommend that you meet with an estate planning attorney and ask for a power of attorney. You may also want to consider having a power of attorney for health prepared for you as well. I'm not sure why you categorized your question as being in the "family law" areas of alimony, child support, divorce, etc. If you are divorced from you wife, please make sure the attorney you work with knows this.
