I want to get my husbands wallet which has his bank card in it.His charge is 2nd degree assult dv. And im the soposid victim. There is a no contact order.If not can a family member get power of attorney over everything he got arrested with incuding his wallet??How do they do it ?
It's not clear to me as to whether you want your husband who is incarcerated to voluntarily give you a power of attorney or whether you want to get one via court action. If it is the former, contact a local attorney who can write a financial power of attorney for you and have someone take it to the prison or jail where he is located for him to sign. If you want a court to give you these rights you need to talk to local counsel.

Please note that your husband has to want to give you his power of attorney to act on his behalf. If that is the case, contact the jail where he is incarcerated and ask them what is their procedure to make this happen and consult with a local attorney.
If you are a victim in a DV case, contact the Victim Advocate's office at the prosecutor's office and ask them to help you get his wallet. If they cannot help you, then ask Volunteer Legal Services to assign you a lawyer to get his wallet. Elizabeth Powell
