My disabled sister lives in the state of Florida and is

My disabled sister lives in the state of Florida and is married. Her disability was caused by a MVA. A few years back her now somewhat estranged husband placed her in a nursing home. I live in another state and am about 800 miles away so I only get to see her a few times a year. Recently during a visit with my sister, she has expressed to her social worker and myself that she wanted me to be her healthcare proxy so the necessary paperwork has been completed. She has now asked me to move her closer to me which I would gladly do however I do not know the laws in doing so. I have two other sisters and my mother lives near me so she would get a lot more needed attention. I have no issues with taking on this responsibility and understand her health issues since I am a nurse. Question is can I move her? What steps do I need to take to get POA? She has absolutely no assets and is on medicare/medicaid. She has also asked to dissolve her marriage. I don't know where to begin but if I knew the laws I will do whatever I need to do to fulfill her wishes. Thank you for your time.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: doe not regard real estate.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: healthcare proxy has been filedJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

We are in a situation where we would like to sell a property

Hi .JA: Hello. What seems to be the problem?Customer: We are in a situation where we would like to sell a property in California that is in a trust account for my parents. Dad is still in charge of the trust and I am on second and mom is passed. My question is we want to sell one of the properties basically because the area it is located is heavy gang neighborhood. It is a rental and honestly I don't even want to go into that area any more. I was raised in the house. Anyway, I have power of attorney over dad which includes selling real estate. I want to do a straight 1031 exchange for another property rental in a better city. 1. Can I do that with the power of attorney 2. Any tax issues because of a trust. 3. Do we keep the new property in dad's name for the deed etc . I just need some guidance because I really want to get away from this neighborhood.
