I recognize that there are few options for family verbal and nonverbal fights over taking care of an elder parent. Given that, is it possible to restrain an individual within a family because it is affecting the care of the elder?
Thanks for using JA. I will do my best to answer your questions. DON’T FORGET, your deposit is not used to compensate me until you rate my service.

While it is possible it can be difficult. The only ones with the authority are the elder parent if they are competent, the person that has their active POA and it has been recorded at the courthouse, or the person's court appointed guardian if there is no POA and the elder parent is not competent. Those are the only ones that would have the legal authority to have a no trespassing or restraining order issued.

What is a POA?

POA is Power of Attorney. A legal document giving someone the power to act on your behalf.
