My mother is dying. I am here POA. She has $50K in credit

My mother is dying. I am here POA. She has $50K in credit card debit. We liquidated her assets, and I created a trust. We put $40K in it. She has $140K in her own account. My lawyer wants me to put another $50K in the trust, and the other $90K in an annuity for Medicaid. Is this legal? The credit cards are with debt collectors. Can they sue her, or me, as POA? Should I settle first? Before setting up the annuity? I am scared to death. And we meet this week to do the annuity. I have second thoughts.

I am the mother of 2 children who's father passed away

i am the mother of 2 children who's father passed away yesterday unexpectedly. He is a resident of Alabama. He recently has been divorced on 8/17/16 in the state of OHIO. He was living alone, had a girlfriend, and had an apartment.The kids tried to get life insurance information from the HR department of his employer and they would not give them anything. The kids are his next of Kin. They then proceeded to get prudential's number, from the employer and made a death claim. They won't know anything for over a week, and only beneficiaries will know anything. Prudential would not give them the amount of the life insurance nor who the beneficiaries are.Their father is in a funeral home and they need to make decisions...how can they do this when they don't know who is the beneficiaries....and they have no money?The ex wife is on her way to claim stuff....there is a girlfriend there also....If the ex is still on his life insurance policy, does she still get his benefits? Or does the divorce kill that in the state of OHIO, even if the life ins and where he worked and lived was in Alabama?

We are settling an estate in Florida. There is an automobile

Good afternoon. We are settling an estate in Florida. There is an automobile involved we have tried to donate to a Veteran Org. We found there is a lien on the automobile. Investigation found that a towing company impounded an abandoned motor scooter allegedly registered to the deceased. After contacting them I was told that they picked it up, held it 60 days, disposed of it and placed a lien on the automobile. This gets more complicated because the deceased was ill and could not drive the scooter. Additionally the scooter has been in disrepair in his garage for the past three years. A check with the local police revealed that they had not ordered the pick up. We would like the lien released so that we can dispose of the automobile. Can you offer any advice.Thank you.

False arrest?: Short version: Currently on Probation for 2

False arrest?:Short version:Currently on Probation for 2 years following DWI. 1 year remaining. Use ignition lock daily. Random checks by Police at house of residence. Cop shows up, just finished eating. Cop does not seem to know how the breathalyzer works. Blew .012. Two times in a row with no waiting. Cop calls Probation Officer and arrests me. Beg cop to give it to me again, two minutes later...blow .007. Cop refuses to believe that this is much less than .012...tries to explain the point system and refuses to call back my Probation Officer. This was Friday night...spent THREE nights in Jail. Monday morning meeting with Probation Officer, he wanted to nail me to the wall and keep me in Jail. I pointed out the radical and quick decrease in breathalyzer tests. Doesn't believe me and needs to look into the "science" of it. Returned to cell. Less than 10 minutes later I am immediately released. Probation Officer had talked to prosecutor who apparently knows the"science"and immediately ordered my release. Probation Officer did everything but apologized and blamed it on the Officer saying he "could have called me back and this never would have happened." No probation plan changes.I am a professional with a master's degree and can afford a lawyer if you feel there is some kind of case here.Thank You,Tina Montgomery M.S. CCC/SLP

Can a Temporary Restraining Order stop an eviction and if so

Can a Temporary Restraining Order stop an eviction and if so how do I prepare it and if not what can I do? I have a situation where I filed a lawsuit against the landlord a few months ago and in response he sent me an eviction notice. My attorney filed the lawsuit but he wouldn't serve it and I couldn't figure out why, after a week or so of talking to the defendants lawyer he told me that the defendants had agreed to except service and that I didn't have to worry about serving them anymore. .He said that he was negotiating a deal with the defendants attorney and was working on a global solution that involved fighting the eviction among other things. Then just before the deadline on service and one day before the eviction hearing my attorney tells me that the defendants had not agreed to except service and that I had to agree not to contest the eviction or else I wouldn't be able to serve the defendants my lawsuit, the entire agreement he made consisted of giving up the eviction in exchange for an extension on service. ThIf us, I had been telling him to serve the petition for over a month. He flat out tricked me into consenting to the eviction. And then he said that he was going to withdraw from the other case as well. Couple weeks went by and I hadn't heard a word from them and then last week on the 17th I received a notice of his intent to withdraw that showed that he was going to be presenting it to the court for approval on the 17th at 3 o'clock. I called the courthouse and informed them that I had not been served properly with notice of that hearing and they told me that they had not received anything from my attorney I called again on the 18th and then on the 19th and it was the same thing, the courthouse still had no record of my attorney submitting his motion to withdraw. Then this morning I check the court website and I see that not only was his motion submit it today but it was also approved today and he has been withdrawn for my case. So here I am facing this addiction is next week and my attorney is just flat gone. I can prove that I was tricked into consenting to that judgment for the evection and I can prove that it is in retaliation for filing the lawsuit, I actually have a text message from the landlord says just don't soon you won't be a victim. And now that this attorney is officially not on record anymore I can take charge and do something myself, what in the world can I do ? I understand that I can attempt to stay the eviction but it's almost been a month since the case was closed, I understand that the judge might be able to overturn some decisions that were made in light of new evidence but I'm being addicted next week and there's no time to schedule a hearing for those matters. This is an emergency situation and I need to stop this right now, or at least allow more time. Can I file a temporary restraining order that will allow for some time to schedule a hearing and get this out in front of a judge? I know that once he sees it that he will agreed that I should not be evicted from my home.
