Recent Springing Power of Attorney questions

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?

If myself (daughter) my dad and his wife (not my mother) is

If myself (daughter) my dad and his wife (not my mother) is on a checking account in Arizona and my father passes away, does his wife receive all the money that is in the checking account? My dad's wife and myself never put any money into this account. His wife was put on the account for convenience. She has her own account that her money went into. They lived and my dad died in Arizona. She was able to keep all her money in her account. Our lawyer in California says she receives all the money according to Arizona law. I just want to check it out because it is $39,000.00 we are talking about.Thank you very much!Gina
