Agree this is a complex fact scenario and one that would be best addressed before either you or your husband get to the point where you are no longer competent to make a will. In general, spouses have some rights in one another's estates upon death, but those rights can be waived by agreement. If inheritances issues are your main source of discord, you may be able to come up with a plan that both of you can live with and that will prevent costly fights over your estate when one of you passes away.See question

Your facts sound a bit complicated and confusing. However, I can point out that the daughter cannot simultaneously claim her mother was incompetent and claim that her mother was of sufficiently sound mind to execute a trust document. If you aunt wishes to revoke the trust and is currently of sound mind, she should contact a well-qualified estate and trust litigator. She may also want to pursue a claim for elder abuse against the daughter, which may involve either a private elder law attorney or the district attorney's office.See question

If you qualify for assistance under the federal Medicaid program, your state may place a lien on your house and sell it when neither you nor your spouse are no longer living there. Only in very limited circumstances will the house be available for use by your child. I recommend you consult with an elder law attorney in your state if this is your situation.
If you are talking about a private contract, such as a reverse mortgage, if the house is part of the conservatorship estate, you probably cannot mortgage the property; however, your conservator may be able to do so, depending on state law and the terms of the conservatorship.See question

As I understand the facts you are providing, your brother has full control of your parents' income and assets through joint ownership of some sort, and he is refusing to provide them with food or shelter. In addition, he may be mistreating them emotionally. I recommend you contact your state's Adult Protective Services department and discuss this with them.
When you say he is trying to have your mother "claimed incompetent," do you mean he is suing for guardianship or conservatorship? If so, the court may be willing to appoint an attorney to represent your mother pro bono or at a reduced rate. If there is a court visitor or neutral party of some sort who has been appointed by the court to assess the situation, you may be able to provide that person with insight into the situation and also do what you can to assure that your mother does in fact oppose the protective proceeding.See question
