My Mother lives in AZ. She has signs of either dementia or

My Mother lives in AZ. She has signs of either dementia or Alzheimer's. My older sister 'sleeps' at the home and claims to be mom's caregiver. This is far from the truth.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Scottsdale AZ. I live in Abilene TX and visited about the middle of January as Mom had been admitted to the hospital twice in less than a Mon.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: My fear is the possibility of my older sister taking advantage of Mom's and our step-father's mental capacities. There has only been 1 Adult Protective Service report which I believe was done by the hospital since my step-father has dementia and was missing for 3 hours from the hospital over Christemas holiday. His driver's license has been revoked when he decided to stop and give a police officer a dressing down while the officer was ticketing another driver.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I need to know how I can protect Mom's assets WITHOUT having to going to Court to gain conservators. My sister isn't truly taking care of Mom, I found bills that had not been paid anywhere from 30-60+ days past due. My older sister doesn't own ANY property, but considers mom's home hers. There are so many questionable things going on that my sister refuses to tell me about and she has already played the system by getting mom to change her Medical POA changed in December when I know for a fact that I had been assigned in August 2004. Now I'm extremely concerned about mom's taxes being filed this year, fraud, ID fraud etc. I do not trust my sister. She has been a liar her entire life as well as having been a hard drug user for over a decade+.

I live in Penna. I am an executor of an old gentleman's

I live in Penna. I am an executor of an old gentleman's will. He had no wife or children. He was 82 years old when he passed. In his will he left me $10,000.00. That was designated in 2009. In April of 2016 he drew a line through that that particular designation and raised it to $18000.00. The deceased signed the change and dated it on April 20, 2016. His attorney says he isn't sure it's the deceased signature. I have known deceased for 50 years. Intimate friends that have known deceased as long as I have say it's his signature. Can you change the will by doing this procedure. Deceased was of sound mind.

I am a 67 y.o. widower recently married to a 67 y.o. widow.

Hi, My name is***** am a 67 y.o. widower recently married to a 67 y.o. widow. I currently have a will that I want to change. We have an appt with the attorney who originally drew up my will, but not until late December. We will be going to Cancun for 5 days from Dec 13th to 18th, and I would like to know if there is a way I can legally change the will to reflect changes in bequests. If I write a codicil and have it notarized, will that ensure that the new bequests are honored? Thank You.JA: Okay, I'll connect you to the Solicitor to go over that information with you. Before I do, is there anything else you want the solicitor to know?Customer: My wife's family will be well provided for from her personal investment funds. I also have a sizable investment fund.
