My mom is 80 and not able to drive any longer. I had title changed to remove her husband (passed away) and added my name with hers.
Yes, assuming that the POA includes THAT power or doesn't prohibit the use of THAT power.See question

I generally agree with the other attorneys who have tried to answer this question. They all make very good points. So, there's "another log on the file" to help you see this more clearly.See question
i only got a little about 5000.00 less then my sister , im not sure but i think it at-least that.
Impossible to answer this question because you did not provide enough information for it to be an answerable-question. Kudos to the other attorneys for trying to help you. If I were to start typing an "answer", it would be like throwing darts at a dartboard in a pitch-black room.See question
Is there a way to locate a will when it never went to probate. I don't know his attorney's name and he passed away in 1994.
Before you spend too much time looking for the Will, it may be a fruitless endeavor because the Will has no validity now. A Will has to be probated (that's the process of determining whether it is valid or not) within 3 years after death.
Having said that, if you're just curious as to what the Will says, there are "Will Location" services on the Internet.See question
My mother wants to amend/restate her trust due to family dynamics now and the death of a sibling/heir. She is co-trustor and co-trustee with my father who just passed away. The trust was made more than 20 years ago and never updated to account for...
You really need to have a trusts attorney review that trust from front to back and top to bottom, but if it says nothing about any portion of it becoming irrevocable at the death of one trustor, then it "looks" from here that it might be amendable. A cleaner approach would be for mother to transfer all of the assets to a new Trust that doesn't have the A/B provisions that she wants to get rid of. If there are no beneficiaries opposed to that, it would even be BETTER if they all signed a CONSENT authorizing her to transfer the assets to a new Trust or to Restate the existing Trust.See question
I know Arizona is a Community Property State and Illinois is not. The state taxes your pensions and has a state income tax. I don't know if my TRAD IRAs would be taxed as well but I would assume so.
Aside from the taxation of your TRAD IRAs (whatever TRAD is an acronym for), you don't necessarily need to create a new Trust when moving from Illinois to Arizona, however, you should develop a professional relationship with an estate-planning firm in Arizona to advise you concerning community property issues. You should absolutely do that. I'd recommend Charles "Chick" Arnold or Dan Morris. You can Google them.See question
My sister and her boyfriend have a 3 month old baby. I'm not saying my sister is and unfit mother but she suffers from depression and the dad is a drug addict. Both of them have warrants put for their arrest. My sisters warrant is for not paying a...
I generally agree with the other attorneys who have tried to answer your question. Fortunate for this child that you care enough to try to get involved. But beware: getting involved takes a huge commitment on your part. While notifying Family Services is fairly easy, you might not be pleased with the family they choose as a foster family. You may feel like the caregiver should be you, but DFS may not agree with you. That could be pretty devastating to you. On the other hand, DFS may be relieved if you're able and willing to be the caregiver -- so that will be a good situation. If you go to a private attorney, it is going to cost you a lot of money. That choice is going to give you more control over the outcome -- than the DFS investigation option -- but it's going to cost a lot of money. Good luck.See question
I had legal guardianship from 2009 to 2012. I took care of my Niece the first two years of her life so her mom can get her crap together. My sister was doing great so the guardianship was dismissed. My sister was arrested and the state to her ...
How strongly do you feel about this? Enough to spend money to get guardianship. An experienced attorney, in the field of guardianship, knows how to present your case so that, if you can be trusted with the guardianship of the minor, the Court (which, as you know, makes the decision concerning who the guardian should be) realizes that you are more trust worthy than a foster family is. It's all about "selling" your abilities and trustworthiness to a Judge. Good luck. Trying to do the right thing is not always easy.See question
my deceased aunt committed elderly abuse on my deceased grandfather. he never pressed charges when he was alive because it was his daughter. My deceased aunt doesnt have anything other than recently she has been named an heir of an estate. can I s...
Your deceased grandfather's estate may have a claim against the estate of your deceased aunt, but I want to emphasize "MAY". You're not going to get a good answer to this question on the Internet. If you feel very strongly about this, you should find a law firm that handles elder abuse cases and schedule a consultation with an attorney who you can talk to face to face. You're not going to get anywhere, productive, trying to figure something like this out on the Internet. IMO. Sorry.See question
If I sign over my parental rights to my mom how do I make it so it works in court? Do I get it norterized or do I have to go to court and get it approved by a judge
I agree with all of the attorneys' answers prior to mine. I would add that you may want the guardianship to be revocable, at your request, with or without a showing of "good cause." You may not want this arrangement to permanent, even if it currently seems or feels like you want it to be permanent. If you're not careful, it will be permanent.See question
