Thank you for the opportunity to assist you. I want to make sure I understand the facts so that I can give you the best answer. If any of the assumptions I've made below are wrong, please let me know the correct information:

1. You have durable power of attorney over your husband

2. You want to prohibit the sons from visiting your husband any more.

Question: Is this POA for every aspect of your husband's life, i.e. financial AND medical needs, or are there any limitations?

Thanks for your help. I'll answer you back as quickly as I can after I get your response.

Entire Durable Power of Attorney and Healt proxy.
Yes wants to forbid the children approach my husband,

Thanks for the clarification.

Based on what you've said, you can do anything your husband could do in terms of prohibiting contact between him and ANYONE in the universe. If HE wanted the sons to stay away, he could certainly prohibit them from coming to his house, to the hospital where he's located, or otherwise having contact through letters, phone calls, etc. Since you have a complete POA, you can do the same.

The first step is to send each son individually a certified letter, return receipt requested. Keep a copy of each letter you sent along with the receipt showing acceptance of the letter by the sons. This shows that the sons have notice. State in the letter that the son is prohibited from contacting your husband in any way and that each is forbidden from coming on the property where your husband is located.

If the sons come around and that property is a home, apartment, etc., call the police. Report to the police that you have forbidden them from having contact or coming on the property, that you sent each a letter, and that they have violated your instructions. Have a copy of the letter you sent ready as well as a copy of your POA.

If your husband is in a hospital, rehab, or long-term facility, speak to the hospital administrator or other designated person. Share with that person your concerns, have proof of your power of attorney ready, and show the person a copy of your letter forbidding each son from having contact. Ask the facility to call the police and to notify you if any of the sons tries to make contact with your husband.

You may also want to touch base with the regular personnel (i.e. nurses and other staff) who routinely interact with your husband and let them know that the sons are forbidden to have contact with your husband.

Hopefully the sons will get the message sooner than later and they will understand they cannot be around your husband any longer.

I hope my response has been helpful. If you have follow-up questions or concerns on this topic, please ask. Otherwise, please rate my answer positively so that I can receive credit for my work. Doing so will NOT cost you any additional fee.

Take care,

These are the brothers they working together, one picked up my registered letter ,and I received an acknowledgment - the other is not answered.
What's in this situation, I have to do?
This applies to my first question.
.

Thanks for the update.

Q) What's in this situation, I have to do?

The brother who picked up the letter now has notice of the fact he should not visit or have contact with your husband. You can use the receipt you have that the brother picked up the letter to prove that he had notice, if you have to call the police.

As for the other brother, you cannot force him to pick up the letter. However, you have proof that you sent the letter to him, and that should help if you have to call the police on him, as well. Once the police are called, they will "officially" inform him that he should not have further contact with or otherwise visit your husband.

Best wishes,
