Can I be sued for an outstanding bill that is my parents? As

Can I be sued for an outstanding bill that is my parents? As their power of attorney, I signed the agreement for the service (home care)? Dad just died last Saturday, and there is an $8700 balance that i have told the company I will pay as soon as I get their taxes done - which i thought I would have done by now , but have been a bit busy caring for my dying dad and my mom. We paid that company promptly over $80K for services until Dad had to go to a nursing home. The balance has been due for about 4 months. I took out a credit card and already paid them $3 - but still owe a balance.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MichiganJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: He says he is filling next week.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Well, there is lots of issues we had with this company - and we were more than patient while they worked out their staffing problems. They are owned by a lawyer and I feel he is just trying everything to bully us. May parents have no money at this point. Except tas refrund.

Are you under attorney-client privilege in this

Are you under attorney-client privilege in this conversation?JA: No. I'm the Lawyer's Assistant.Customer: How can I be assured that the information will not be miss-used or exposed inappropriately?JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: californiaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: yes. I sent a letter to the CA nursing home licensing board with a copy to CANHR regarding the "false imprisonment" of my dad (took 4 paramedics to get him on the gurney) and am currently in Probate Court to obtain conservatorship which seemed the fastest and best way to protect him going forward.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have been told by his court-appointed attorney that I am in the wrong venue and that the issues of elder abuse and powers of dementia require another court action ... so they were not aggressively pursued. However, I now discover the concept of "Res Judicata" which requires that we address all of this now in an aggressive manner ... need to go to trial and to obtain a more aggressive litigator.

I live in WV. My father passed away 2/8/1998 and he was cremated. My mother had his ashes and she was in a rental house and she was going to be moving to an apartment. She gave me my father's ashes to hold onto. When I found out a year and a half later I hired a lawyer (now deceased) and he had to make my brother probate the will! The lawyer and tried to make my mother understand that my brother was spending her money since he had power of attorney. When my brother found out he placed a restraining order on me. Eventually he moved her out of state. I had my dad's ashes for more than a year, maybe two before I was notified that my niece would come to pick up the ashes.Here is the problem: I took my dad's ashes out of the box and I replaced them with other ashes. I still have my dad's ashes and they never knew. My mother just passed away and I'm afraid if my brother finds out, he will have me prosecuted.

My mother has alzheimer's disease and is a resident in a

My mother has alzheimer's disease and is a resident in a memory care facility. In 2012, she changed her durable POA paperwork so that my brother is now POA and not me. She was told that it should be that way because he lives in state and I do not. She was lucid at the time of the paperwork being changed. My brother is not performing his duties as POA as he should. My mother is missing medical appointments, medical bills are not being paid, etc. and he will not return my phone calls. I talked with him before my mother went in to the facility about making me durable POA, since I have the time to do the paperwork, and he refused. I do have medical POA, and am listed as the second on durable POA. Do I have any recourse re: his being durable POA. Can I do anything legally to have the paperwork changed, or are we stuck with this? Even my mother has voiced concern that he now has control over her bank accounts.JA: Can you tell me what state this is in? And just to clarify, what paperwork has been filed?Customer: Sorry. Rhode Island.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: With regards ***** *****?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: My brother has a history of mental illness. He and his wife both smoke "medical" marijuana daily. I don't know what state of mind they are in, but I am concened about my mother.
