My father designated in his will that both my brother and I were to be equal trustees of the estate if my mother was unable to take care of the estate. My brother then went and obtained a power of attorney for himself, shutting me out of decision...
This sounds like elder financial abuse and I would suggest consulting with local counsel to have guardianship and conservatorship imposed on your mother. This would be a probate court proceeding and your brother can be held to account.See question

This Person and I are family by law. We planned to get a house together. This individual took an earnest money from me with the promise that we where going to be under contract. I took the money out of the bank and gave it to her trusting her beca...
You should definitely pursue this. Consult with a local police and if they won't do anything get a lawyer.See question
My mother is a hospice patient in the late stages of Alzheimers being cared for at home. Whatever this judgement is for has got to be at least 10 years old. She hasn't used credit cards for at least that long. She doesn't have any money, she ...
Rule #1 Can't get blood out of a turnip. If your mom has no money, house, stuff, there's nothing for a judgement to collect against.
Rule #2 Social Security is absolutely protected against collection, even after it's deposited in your account (same with VA pension benefits). Change banks to avoid this collection process.
Rule #3 Not everyone understands Rules 1&2, so consult with a local attorney.

Yes, in the regulations, but you're best off consulting with a local elder law attorney. Nothing is more common than family member experts who have read the regulations, interpreted the regs according to their own methods, and screwed up the application. There are ways to do these things, especially from the documentation and application point of view, that your attorney can really help!See question

You definitely need to consult with a local elder law attorney. It is clear to you that these "caregivers" are scammers, etc but how that comes out in court or to the police may be very different and that's why you need real assistance.See question
My mother is 75 yo and is in relatively in good heath. She has health insurance now but may in the future need long term care. Will she be penalized by Medicaid if she transfers the $9500 to me now?
Yes. The money is a divestment that will result in a penalty period if mom needs and applies for Medicaid within 60 months from the date of the gift.See question
My sister has the power of attorney over our mother's estate. Our mother is at a nursing home (long term) and got approved for Medicaid. My sister has been responsible for our mother's checking account in which our mother receives social securit...
So your sister spent money that she had already written checks to the nursing home for because she didn't want to go over the $2000 limit? And now the checks have bounced and the nursing home is cheesed because it didn't get paid and now thinks that your sister stole/misused the money. Got it! These things do happen (however unlikely they seem to people who do this on a daily basis)... so get with a respected local elder law attorney who maintains good relationships with the local facilities and has some credibility with them and work this out... In future, pay the patient pay amount with certified checks so that the money is gone from mom's account immediately.See question
My step-mom held a benefit and called it a "benefit for the family of Jack Allen" . She used her churches tax ID number for benefit donations. My dad did not have life insurance and was not able to save money. It was my understanding per her that ...
Smells like fraud to me! Perhaps a telephone call to Officer Friendly at the local PD is in order...See question
