Power of Attorney – Missing Husband
I have been married 16 years and have four children. My husband is an alcoholic/drug addict and took off with another woman. He has abandoned me and the kids and left us with no money and is not supporting the family. Everything is in his name or both. There has been no contact for a few weeks. He was the sole provider for this family and now I am in jeopardy of losing my home and having everything shut off. What are my rights and can I get the house and everything put in my name because he can’t be found

Is there a such thing as a power of attorney fee?
I have taken care of my mother-in-laws affairs for 2 years and have a law suit against a nursing home. I have power-of attorney. She will be settling with the nursing home soon and now her son who has been non-existant in her life these 2 years wants power-of-attorney. I would like for her burial expenses to be taken care of as well as other preparations for her, however I also believe that when her son gets the money from the law suit none of this will be don for her.She will not see any substantial amount of this money for herself. Is their a fee I can claim for the work I’ve done for her these past 2 years of handling her affairs?

Transfer of funds legally
My father died 2 years ago and left everything to my mother including house, bank accounts, retiremnt funds, life insurance, etc. My brother automatically started changing bank accounts that were in her name on the internet and added his name to all of her accounts. Is this legal or is there any say as to my mother? Didn’t she have to fill out paperwork with the bank herself? He withdrew a lot of money from the accounts and I have no idea were it went. Some accounts like checking and her life insurance he totaly closed. Now my mother is a danger to herself so I had her commited to a state hospital and they transfered her to Assisted Living. The doctors say there is a very good chance she can return home, but my brother is trying to sell her house. Now he is getting my incompetent mother on heavy doses of sedatives to sign him Power of Attorney with the nurses staff as witnesses and is going to have it notorized. I wasn’t allowed to see the will and supposedly I have no say. Is this legal with what he did to the bank accounts? Is my mother competent enough by law yto sign him power of attorney? Thank You for helping me out with this. I appreciate a great deal.
