Statuory Durable Power of Attorney.

My Uncle died and his agent is disabled and in a nursing home not able to care for her self, I was named the next in charge. Can you let me know what is legal?

A power of attorney is useless once the person who wrote it is dead. If your uncle had a living wife, children or grandchildren, they are the heirs if there is no will. If there are no children or grandchildren, then his brothers and sisters would be next in line. I'm sure there are more details and you should talk to a probate attorney. I recommend Howard Reiner (713) 963-8004
