Wife (age 74) of Dad (age 88) forged a POA so badly that VA Hospital (their own form) finally realized it and rescinded it. Wife then went and signed a DNR which Dad would never have wanted. Truth is Dad just received a settlement from VA in 2016. By March 2016 she had him purchase a home in his and her name through VA w/no money down so she could spend the cash Dad received. Hid his will from daughters, banned us from the funeral and we had to schedule our own. Couldn't get APS to do anything, SAPD hasn't investigated the reported forgery nor the VA Police. Filed homicide report to have autopsy done but they closed the case when report came back as "natural death." We came upon her at the funeral home making arrangements then a few weeks later she had Dad starved to death by some f***ked up law. I can't file pro se in probate & afraid if I file civil suit pro se they're going to send me to probate anyway then I've paid two filing fees. Currently working on White Collar Crime Package to SAPD to see if I can get somewhere with them because we're not rich. What I really want to do is have the real estate transaction rescinded based on lack of Dad's mental capacity. $ gone.
