I have DPOA and, currently, full responsibility for my mother's finances. Due to family dynamics, my BIL is now involved in mom's care and helping get her moved in to a new IL facility. My BIL wanted to contribute money to mom and help cover some expenses for a few months until other sources start to come in.
I am dreading having to interact with my BIL about things. Mom's account is low right now and since he said he will provide money, I have to pretty much ask him for money. I am hesitant to give him complete access to her bank account.
Right now I am trying to stick to email and avoid the phone.
I guess getting everything as automatic as possible is probably one of the best things I can do. that is possible for bills. Any other suggestions? I want to be able to know exactly what amount of money he will give her each month. But then, this is supposed to be temporary.
