My mother is incapacitated, recently widowed (husband was

My mother is incapacitated, recently widowed (husband was caregiver) and now living in a nursing home in Pennsylvania. The Area Agency on Aging is providing protective services, she also has an attorney representing her. She has 4 children; 2 of us live in California, 2 in Pennsylvania. The three of us girls feel/think it is in our mother's best interest to have a neutral guardian support agency appointed as Guardian since all 4 of us stand to inherit when she passes, not so with our brother who lives in Pennsylvania. He is petitioning the courts to appoint him as “permanent, plenary Guardian” of our mother and her estate. Her estate is just under $200,000.00.During a discussion with my brother in an attempt to convince him to let the professionals who have the necessary expertise and years of experience handle her estate for her benefit he disclosed something quite disconcerting. He disclosed to me that his 58 year old wife, whom he married in 2012, is and has been receiving SSDI benefits on her deceased spouses record. She continues to withhold the change in her marital status from SSA allowing my brother and his wife to use his wife's income for their rent. When I addressed the potential consequences of this fraud he acknowledged they were well aware of them; his response was “I got it handled.”The 3 of us girls can't afford an attorney or for the 2 of us to fly back east. But we are concerned that if he thinks little of benefiting as an accessory to a federal crime what's to stop him for wasting or stealing our mom's money?I've been told this knowledge is hearsay so there is nothing I/we can do. Is this true? Is there nothing we can do? Even if it is hearsay shouldn't my mother's attorney know about it? We girls are really afraid this isn't going to end well for our mother.

I have a question on divorce or disillusionment. I have been

I have a question on divorce or disillusionment. I have been separated from my husband for three years in Ohio. I left him because of physical and emotional abuse. We had three kids together, the youngest will be 18 years old in two weeks. We bought a house together in the marriage, money invested, 20,000 roughly, have paperwork. Also, have police reports and children that witnessed the abuse.Now, current situation, after a year of separation I moved on, I am with someone else and 27 weeks pregnant. He also moved on and is dating someone too. We wanted a disillusionment, but since he is making things complex, thinking about a divorce. He claims he would file for adultery, but obviously we both moved on through the years and found someone else. What would be the best situation for me?Thinking about a lawyer near the Middletown OH area, thanks!~Crystal

I live in NJ. I am 2 months pregnant and filed a consensual

I live in NJ. I am 2 months pregnant and filed a consensual annulment which should be granted at my hearing date in about a month, since I had solid legal grounds.My soon to be ex husband has no interest in being a parent, and I do not plan to put him on the birth certificate.I know in NJ there is a statute that states a man is presumed to be the father if the woman was married to him within 300 days of delivering her baby.Does this mean I am required to place him on the birth certificate? Will the hospital ask me if I was married within 300 days?I am not using social services or anything, so I do not know that I need to put the father's name down, since he is not interested.I'm not sure if the presumption of paternity means his name must be on the birth certificate? Or only if he were to file for rights would the presumption of paternity be activated?Basically I want to keep things simple and just put my name there, and he is agreeable to this as he has no interest. Can you advise me if I can do this?
