Mother had put in place a vile woman from another state (instead of me, her only child) back in 2004. This woman caused a great deal of stress and kept me from seeing mother while mother was in ICU, etc. Plus this woman ordered people to take everything out of mother's house, opened up debit cards to access mother's bank accounts, etc. Since then this woman's POA has been revoked. However, I need to get a copy of the old POA that mother had as I am taking legal action against that woman who was her former POA. I have attempted several times to get ahold of mother's attorney who wrote it and he refuses to give me a copy of the old POA. Mother's current POA refuses to help me as well. Had mother died when all of this was going on, I would have lost my mind having been kept from seeing her by these people. I am not allowed to make any decisions regarding my mother and I am 47. I was the one who took care of this woman, brought her groceries, took her to doc, etc. and no one seems to care about me regarding how I feel I have been left in the dark about most everything pertaining to mother. I have gotten the paperwork started and have a court date coming up to discuss me getting guardianship of her. I have been informed that it will be hotly contested. Since I am the only child and only heir, why am I not allowed to know anything?
