Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Sorry for the confusion. I was under the impression you were asking about step kids...but these are biological kids.
Can you tell me, is your spouse competent?
First, there is no charge for follow on questions. ONce we finish here, I will send this to the moderators and ask your deposit be refunded for this questionI have some thoughts and will type them up...a few mins please
Thank you for your patience
I asked about if he was competent since one easy way to address this (a case where different family members attempt to get involved in health care decisions) is with a power of attorney. If he is competent? He can appoint you as his agent via a power of attorney.
But I see that has happened already! That is great. That is, that POA will be your ticket through this mess
While it is true, in general, if there is a person in medical care and they can not make decisions on their own, the hospital/doctor will consult with family including spouse and children...once there is a power of attorney? That trumps. If you are his poa his kids have NO say in his medical care decisions. Period.
Sorry for the confusion on this.Let me know if you have more questions...and if not, let me know so I can get this question closed and refunded
I will close this now...so I will not be able to answer (they will lock it and issue a refund)
If you ahve more question, you can always go back to the original question you asked.
