Customer Question
I received a response on...
I received a response on 11/23/2017 pertaining to my mother in law being in a religious cult, well I went there myself on the 27th on November and I found that she is in fact is in a compound. However, these individuals had her sign papers that she really didn't know what she was signing, my mother in law is 92 and can barely see, however the are trying to get complete control of her financial, they are moving her bank account but, wont tell her where or when, they have requested checks be sent to them without her knowing. my question is how do I get this paperwork revoked she is willing to do what it takes, I must tell you the only problem my mother in law has is that she cant see, she has all of her faculties.

Thank you for requesting for my assistance once more.

You need to prepare Durable Power of Attorney for her to sign revoking ALL previously granted Power of Attorney and appointing you her Power of Attorney. With this document, you would go to the bank to stop anything this cult is trying to do with her money. You can obtain sample Durable Power of Attorney forms from the following sites:

lawdepot.com

uslegalforms.com

lawguru.com

Also and more importantly, you need to remove her from there and find another place for her.

Best wishes,

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
