You must have some sort of a paper trail. Invoices from caregivers, bills in folks names. If you do not have those things right at hand, I would certainly start compiling them. What sorts of bills would you pay in cash? It seems that checks should have been used or a credit card or something other than cash to pay anything.

What happens sometimes is that unscrupulous children think that having "power of attorney over everything" is a license to steal. Other siblings will often first ask for an accounting of money spent, and, when that isn't forthcoming, they tend to believe the worst. Then, when they find out there's lots of cash going out with no paper trail? They feel quite justified in calling DHS and asking for an investigation.

I'm sure when you show them copies of all your parents' bills you've paid and it comes relatively close to the amount of money gone from their accounts everything will be just fine.

Right?

Do you have documentation as to the bills you've paid? And what's the reason for paying in cash as opposed to creating a paper trail with checks?

What happened the second time, when no one would tell you what the charges were? What did DHS reps do? Were you served with a summons or subpoena or anything else? What were the charges the first time?

I think you're going to need an attorney, and quickly.
