My daddy died in 2012. My mother chose to come to my home n

My daddy died in 2012. My mother chose to come to my home n live with me. In 2012, She executed a power of atty, durable n general, for me to take care of her. I do EVERYTHING for my mother by myself. I take care of her, my six dogs, my home, laundry, cleaning, EVERYTHING. Now, right at 4 years later, ONE sister is angry because she says she can't visit "freely". My other sister has written my mother's attorney a letter on my n my mother's behalf. I also have PROOF my "mean" sister visited MOST every time she has wanted to, but I have always ASKED for a day's notice so I can make sure I'm not in middle of bathing mama or in middle of MANY other things that my mother is supposed to have done. (Walking 5 times a day, inhaler puffs 4 times day, neb treatments 2 X day, breakfast, lunches supper, baths, meds 3 times a day, her hair cutting n coloring done by me). Without going into EVERYTHING, this one sister has hired an attorney n they THREATENED that if I did not get my name off of a POD acct which my mother (without my knowledge at that time) put me on to, and send them copies of all my mother's bank statements (which my MOTHER does not want to do), send them proof of home insurance showing the ins coverage on my mother's house (she was left a life estate but she wanted to come live with me. Her house is in a bad neighborhood AND I could not take care of her at her home with all my dogs n I have had 2 back surgeries as well) that they would file for a conservator or guardianship. I got my mother an attorney. My mother took a mental evaluation and passed. My mother is happy, healthy safe n secure with me. Her doctors BOTH say her health has improved. Sunday my sister was confronted by my mother asking WHY WAS SHE DOING THIS. My mother told her u DO see me n told her that she n I both let my sister see n visit with her. My mother is very upset over what my sister is doing. They have tried to infer that my mother has dementia (she does not) n that I CONTROL my mother. (If anything my mother controls me). I'm just at a loss when I e done NOTHING but put my mother's physical and emotional well being above mine. If my mama is happy, I'm happy. The untrue, false n, in my opinion, letters that clearly are a defamation of my character....., nasty n mean letters have been going on since June 15, 2012. My mamas atty says that "they" (my sister n her atty) r crazy n she's not worried. BUT im devastated, hurt n I just don't see how so many lies can just continue. It's taking a toll on me, but I'm doing everything just as always for my mother and her house and her meds n Drs n paying her homes bills. Then of course I still have to take care of my house. Please help. I know this is jumbled information, but I'm at my wits end. Any advice would be appreciated.

My husband has been ill and moved in with his mother for

My husband has been ill and moved in with his mother for several months before his liver transplant. She says she has power of attorney but my husband has not been of sound mind for over 18 months. He had his transplant last Monday and I was not told. I found out thru calling the hospital. He has made it very clear to me that he wants me to be a part of this process since I am the one who got him all of the appointments for this issue. When I went to the hospital, my mother in law made a scene and screamed down the hall not to come back. My husband needs me and wants me to be there. We are still legally married and she has continually threatened not only me but my husband.Please help!Thank you,Leann Gisvold ***@******.*** (###) ###-####

I red a caregiver and they stole items from my father. I was

I hired a caregiver and they stole items from my father. I was assured by the agency their employees are bonded and background checked. Yet when I terminated the contract due to what I consider breach, the agency retained a lawyer to sue me for not paying the balance owing. My argument is that I am dissatisfied with the level of care provided for my father due to the stealing and am not paying. Am I within my rights?There is a case number ***** the police department, and video evidence showing her taking my father to the bank to withdraw money in his wheelchair multiple times in one week with no receipts to substantiate the withdrawls. The amount totaled 1,600.00. Additionally she took him shopping to purchase personal items for herself and have him pay on his credit cards. This is in direct violation to the contract in a specifically stated section. They are not to receive gifts or money under any circumstances.

Almost a year ago my husband and I tt tough times and sent

Almost a year ago my husband and I hitt tough times and sent my kids to live with my sister in Pennsylvania. I've sorted out my life and am moving near her and want the kids back in my life. She has kept her door shut to me, she hasn't returned my calls, and wants to keep my kids. I'm wondering what rights I still have if any and how I can get visitation at first and perhaps custody back now?

I have land (no buildings) that I am hoping to hold onto

I have land (no buildings) that I am hoping to hold onto for the rest of my life and then will it to the next generation. I have 4 friends who each have children. I'd like to create some kind of 'conservatorship' or ' trust' or some other vehicle (I don't understand these legal terms at all), so that I can ' will' the land to the next generation, which would mean giving it to a ' group' that is unrelated to me and unrelated to each other. There's a total of 8 children. Several are in early teens (youngest) several are already in their 20s. How might I create a way to 'will' my land to them as a group, so that the group would be able to own the land collectively and make decisions about how to use it in the future? Thank you!
