I live with my parents in our 3 family home. I have been their managing their affairs for over 20 years. I am POA for both. My mother recently came back from the hospital and rehab center.
Has been harassing me and my dad to become his POA. She filed a motion with the NY Supreme court to be named as soul custodian for my father. In it she demands that she take over all of his assets, including his properties. She alleges that I have been using the POA to for myself and have been moving these monies around for m y own purposes. Which is a lie. She wants to gain ownership of our building so she can sell it and keep the money and put my dad in a nursing home and have complete control over his life. There is no mention as to what is to become of my mom. There is a long list of complete horrible things she said I do to him. My dad does not suffer from any cognitive illness as she alleges and was knew exactly what he was doing and why he signed the POA. All of this is nothing more than greed on the part of my sister and her husband to gain control of their assets and cut me out of the picture.
There is a court appointed lawyer for my dad. Can I sue for slander and defamation?
