A Power of Attorney is a legal document you use to allow another person to act for you. You create a legal relationship in which you are the principal and the person you appoint is the “attorney-in-fact” or agent. A Power of Attorney specifies the powers you give to your attorney-in-fact. The powers can be limited or broad. For example, if you are selling your house, but unable to attend the closing, you can give someone the power just to sign the deed in your absence. Most durable powers of attorney, however, give your attorney-in-fact the power to do almost anything you could do

Even if BIL has POA, that does not give him the authority to place her in rehab against her will or to keep her there. Is your mother competent (in her right mind)? Do you disagree about rehab being the best place for her at this time?

What kind of stuff has BIL been lying about?

He has to show proof of his POA status when he is asserting his authority to act on your mother's behalf. For example, he would put it on file with a credit card company and with her insurance firm, etc. Some parties will insist on a POA on their own forms. I suppose he does not have to show the POA document to you, but I find the fact that he won't highly suspicious.

What do your parents say? Do they agree they have given him POA?

BTW, if they are in their right minds and they don't want him as POA, they can very easily appoint someone else, such as you, and his authority is immediately void.

I think if he were DPOA he'd be running around waving papers to prove that he was DPOA.

Tell him you want proof. If he's actually DPOA then prove it and the matter will be settled.
