Being declared incompetent after changing deed and life insurance beneficiary
An elderly woman whose mental state has been deteriorating for some time, added an unrelated person to her home’s deed.She also changed the beneficiary on her life insurance to the same person, 7 months ago. We believe she would not have done this if mentally stable and believe she was manipulated by the newly named beneficiary. The woman’s nephew who lives in another state, was named as her power of attorney, years ago. Due to her current mental state, she is likely to be declared incompetent. Can her nephew petition the court to reverse the changes made to her deed and life insurance? What are the chances the court will have the second name removed from the deed and reinstate the original beneficiary to the life insurance policy?

Revocation of Revocable Living Trust My parents made a revocable living trust…

Revocation of Revocable Living Trust
My parents made a revocable living trust in both their names in 2001. My mother passed away in June, and my father is in a nursing home. I have power of attorney for him. I would like to revoke the living trust. My father owns no tangible property, and he only has investments under the amount of $250,000, and a checking account with about $12,000. The bank where he has the checking account won’t take my mother’s name off the account unless they have a document that states that a new trust was created in my father’s name alone or that the trust was revoked. How can I go about revoking this living trust in a simple, uncomplicated manner?

Power of Attorney/Legal Documents My grandmother has passed away and in 1998…

Power of Attorney/Legal Documents
My grandmother has passed away and in 1998 she had power of attorney paper done by an attorney. With these papers the bank and other places state that these paper are no longer valid, because she died. However in the papers it clearly states ”this power of attorney shall not be affected by my subsequent disability or death” ”This power of attorney shall continue in force and may be accepted and relied upon by any person to who it is presented dispite my purported revocation of it or my death, until actual written notice of either event has been received by that person. Any bank or trust company may rely upon the continuance of this power of attorney until receives written notice of its revocation.” What does PA law state? Are these papers still legal or are they no longer due to the fact she has now passed? If they are sill valid how do I prove it to these companys without hassle? The house is already in my name and has been for years. I am already on her checking, just not savings. I want to close both of her bank accounts and transfer her household bills into my brothers name, he lived with her and we just want him to buy my half of the house and place it in his name along with all the house bills.
