Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
I think you should have mother complete a new POA here and take over as POA. You should not be expected to care for her without funds to do so.You have legal standing here if mother has capacity for a new POA. If you have too then a conservatorship/guadianship would be the legal option.This makes no sense for the other party to manage her money when you need financial help.These are your options a new POA or go to the courts for conservatorship/guardianship here in California.
You should also be paid as caregiver if there are funds here.
POA forms above.
Conservatorship forms to award
you legal conservatorship
You can file for conservatorship here to get the sister out
of the picture.
I appreciate the chance to help.I wish you the best with your mother and the sister too.
If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
