My mom needs to revoke my sister as her POA. Can we do this ourselves or do we have to get an attorney to do this? It needs to be done ASAP.

Once my parents healt began to seriously fail they decided it was best to remove my sister from the POA because at the time of urgency she was of NO HELP!, fearing that if anything, she would be a henderance. My city has an agency for the elderly that provides free or pro bono services depending on age and income. We were able to have a new POA drawn up for free. Check your cities resources or consult your attorney.

When your Uncle becomes POA ask him to have your sis to provide an accounting of your mother's money and have all funds acquired after expenses turned over to him. I am a little confused, why does your mother need a POA? If she works outside the home I assume she is competent. I stated before if she does not need help now handling financial affairs she should get a POA that does not go into effect until she is incapacitated or deemed incompetent. Good Luck

At the end of all this, if it turns out she was totally bluffing all along, and never had any POA, don't forget that she furnished false info to the USPS. It doesn't matter that she didn't show anything to the USPS. She stated that she was your mother's executor, guardian, authorized officer, or agent, and if she was changing your mother's address against her will, that was a false statement! Period!

I don't know if she is or isn't. If she did I'm sure she got it under false pretenses and made my mom sign a paper she was unaware of what she was signing. We have never seen the document at any time and the USPS office says they used to ask for a copy but they don't anylonger.

I just checked the USPS website. Your sister would still have had to state that she was, at the very least, your mother's agent (which she wasn't,right?) in order to change your mother's address. It also says that if she furnished false information, she could be punished by fine or imprisonment or both. Believe me, it is not simple to change someone's address legally, if they don't want you to. And that's a good thing!

I can't do it online as my mom does not have her credit cards. My sister has them and that is how she changed it. That is why I have to physically take mom to the post office and sign the card and tell them it is not to be changed again unless done in person by my mother or her POA. We have not yet changed POA as lawyer is still waiting for documentation from doctor who is holding things up.

When I went into Post Office a year ago to submit change of address for mil, they told me it was easier to do it online. Got online, changed it, that was it. She didn't have to prove who she was at all. Have you gotten the new POA with mom's signature?

Thanks. I am taking mom to post office today to change it back. Will they be able to tell me if they have a copy of the POA? I think my sister did it online though as you have to use a credit card with mom's name on it for fraud purposes. If she didn't show the post office the POA I think I have her by the butt!!!

If your sister filed a change of address for your mother's mail without her permission, then she either forged your mother's signature or provided a copy of the POA. I know this from recent experience. If she forged a signature on a federal document, then you've really caught her on a big one. Good luck!

No idea. She has opened a savings account in her name without my mother's name and is depositing my mother's money in there. I don't know what happens now. As soon as my uncle takes POA I am assuming he can make my sister turn all that over to him and he will open new accounts for mom.
