Hello. I am dealing with an issue where I am having a problem

Hello. I am dealing with an issue where I am having a problem with some family members who I believe have plans to bring me harm for monetary gain. I think my mother is trying to get my share of my elderly wealthy grandparents money that they have set up in a trust. What I believe is an irrevocable trust. I suspect they have plans to cause me disabling harm and come in and get a power of attorney over my money / assests prior to my grandparents passing. This is going to be enough money that I don't feel I have anyone I can trust to use in a springing power of attorney since I am not married. What can I put in place to see to it they can't get that money or any other of my money / assets in the event I become incapicated.

Some of my family members are trying to position themselves

Some of my family members are trying to position themselves to get a power of attorney or guardianship over me and have made accusations I am mentally ill. I suspect they would even cause me to have an accident to get me stated as being incompetent. My mother is after some money my dad left me when he died. Our relationship is bad but they are my only next of kin and I don't have anyone I trust enough to put in as a springing power of attorney. What should I do so they can never get the money if something happens to me?

This is for Barrister only please, so will wait for his

This is for Barrister only please, so will wait for his answer: Evil sister case. I have found what I hope to be yet another contradiction in the trust or another grey area. In section VII, page 4, where it says "should ANY of the settlor's grandkids or great grandkids pass prior to the date of termination, then that beneficiary's share is divided equally amongst the survivors"....Then remember how later on that page is says how it shall vest till age 30 or sooner dies and then the trustee shall then disburse?Well, in case you couldn't read sister's response letter date Jan 9, that I uploaded she says this:"The way to look at it is this: Until the money has been disbursed to you, it still belongs to Mom's trust. Her trust dictates the beneficiary issue, and it's well covered. Once all funds are disbursed at age 30 or less (because of a home etc), then you can draw up a will etc."The problem I see here is that her son, my nephew is age 43. He has all his funds distributed already. But, in section VII, it says prior to the date of termination, if ANY of the beneficiaries pass prior to, their share is equally divided etc....So.....does that mean the trust is terminated for HIM and not my kids, like it is half terminated? The word ANY grandkids or great grank kids is used, which includes him. I see it that it would be unfair that if he died, regardless of distribution that no money is equally divided, but for my kids it would be? What do you think?

I live in a home that is in my name. My daughter and her

I live in a home that is in my name. My daughter and her family also live there. They pay me 60% of the rent each month and have been for 9 years and we expect it ti continue. My intention is when the house is sold they will get 60% of the proceeds. If I have passed, I want them to be able to live here until they sell; they would get their 60% and the remaining 40% would be split among this daughter and 2 other children. Do I put this in my will, or do a need something else to protect their rights?

I am in the process of divorcing my husband. He took out a 200,000 life policy on me through his job. When we are divorced can he still be be beneficiary? I am uncomfortable with him having this policy on me. It feels like there is a price on my life and he may do something or have some one else do something to me.I read in Georgia there is a minority law that nullifies ex spouses as beneficiaries.I am afraid to ask him about it. He has fits of rage.I'm not sure how to address this issue.How do I get a copy of that law?
