Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello Donald. My name is ***** ***** I'm an attorney. I'll be happy to answer your question - and apologize in advance b/c I don't have good news. If your sister has POA over your mother she's well within her legal right to give up your mom's apartment and have mom move in with her. Unless it's being done for some unethical or illegal reason there's really not that much about the decision to do this that can be challenged. Please let me know if you have any additional questions; I'd be happy to answer them. And, again, I'm sorry I couldn't give you good news.
I am a different Attorney as the attorney that was working with you opted out. At this point your sister has the power of attorney for your to have more authority and decision making power over the well being of your mother you would want to have the court appoint you as her guardian. At that point your sister's POA becomes worthless. I can provide a link for attorneys in your area that provide FREE consultations. It is also possible for you to do this without an attorney.
