Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
This is a durable power of attorney and I previously had my former foster parents be my power of attorney but since my domestic violence incident with my husband I am no longer talking with my former foster parents. Ii am living with my friend and she is my new power of attorney.
I have revoked my previous power of attorney and have the new one in place.
The social worker will not talk to my new power of attorney because she believes that my friend which is my poa is controlling me and abusing me and my son. My daughter and her son have nothing on them and they are not concerned about them. I am looking for legal advice so when I meet with the social worker this afternoon I can make sure my poa is not at risk for following to jail and getting looked at as abusing me and my son.
The other problem is I don't have an attorney because I am on social securityddisability and only get $500 per month. I have been looking for an attorney who is willing to take a pro bono case for all my legal issues because they all go together. The cps accusations are because of my soon to be former husband.
Ok, thank you so much. Do I register as a new user on the website so I can save this conversation and ask for more advice if any other legal questions arise?
