My brother is joint POA though I've managed everything for 2 years. He's begun to act paranoid, is making a lot of phonecalls to lawyers, Drs. and caregivers upsetting the apple cart I've painstakingly held together.
Mom, bro, and I asked for a trust to be set up, I'm the trustee once Mom is determined to be 'disabled (or deceased)'.
Mom and went and signed the trust paperwork.
I immediately asked her Dr. for a letter stating her 'disability' so I can assume control and limit my brother's access to money and belongings.
So, she signed the trust, and the next day her Dr writes a letter that she has a diagnosis of 'probably Alzheimer's' and is unable to manage her own finances.
Is the timing problematic? If my brother wants to say how could she be ok to sign the paperwork and the next day she can't maintain her money??
