Ray, I just wanted to make sure I was doing the statement

Hi Ray,I just wanted to make sure I was doing the statement of facts correctly.Also, on the exhibits, do they get cited on the points relied on or statement of facts? On the document the opposing party submitted STA0025 it stands for St. Anthony's hospital but I am surprised they submitted that page because the Dr. Burns they are quoting said my sister was alert, however on the same page it lists Marc Kramer states we are estranged and then it has her advanced directive.Thank you..

I'm a 60-year-old editor with some serious health problems.

I'm a 60-year-old editor with some serious health problems. I'm concerned about not having a living will or advance directive. I'm divorced with no children, and no next of kin.I'm also concerned that if anybody in my estranged birth family heard that I was too ill to take care of myself, or if I died, he or she might attempt to take control of my property and bank accounts. My birth family consists of very real criminals. I haven't seen any of them for almost 20 years because they're dangerous. They seriously injured me in the past more than once.If I were to die suddenly without a will, what would happen to my property and bank accounts? What if I were unconscious for an extended period of time? I don't have any close normal relatives, or close friends.

I completed and had executed a Power of Attorney and Living

I completed and had executed a Power of Attorney and Living Will both of which I received from LegalZoom. Since my family are designated beneficiaries on my financial annuities and I no longer own a house as I did in New Jersey, do I still need to do a Last Will appointing my eldest daughter as Executrix since she is designated as my Attorney-in-Fact in the Power of Attorney. I don't think I need one but wanted to get a legal opinion here in California.Thank youPatricia Mullins ***@******.***

A man who has been admitted to Hospice care initiated a P.O.A.

A man who has been admitted to Hospice care initiated a P.O.A. to his daughter. She fully understands that the POA "dies" when the father passes!However, said man has two insurance policies with his son as the beneficiary. The son is a Teamster and may be away, "on the road", when his father passes!Is there an instrument that he can sign that would give his sister the authority to act to dispose of the father's body in accordance with the son's wishes?Would a specific POA from the Beneficiary to his sister directing her to act be sufficient? What would such an instrument say?
