How can I encourage my Father-In-Law to set up Durable Power of Attorney and Estate Planning?
My husband and I have been caring for my FIL for the past year and as far as we know, he only has a will set up ( and we are not sure about that ).
Lately, I have noticed a decline in his mental status, as well as physical.
My husband's sisters are very unstable and have never done anything to help their father but are dependant on him for money and transportation. One lives at home and the other one next door. To say there has been dysfunction, would be an understatement.
My FIL owns his home and it is paid for. We moved in with him last year.
We are concerned, upon his passing that he will leave the home to the three of them, which my husband does not want. We have helped pay for numerous repairs, complete landscaping of the yard, and I am the caretaker.
I personally do not care, because I don't believe a word the man says ( my FIL lies ), but my husband feels hurt that his father will not get these affairs in order. My husband does not even speak to one sister and does not trust them.
How can we encourage my FIL to have all of this in the open with my husband?
