My mom has requested that I make arrangements for her to rewrite her will. She wants to be sure my brother gets nothing. I am really uncomfortable over this. As side from the question of whether or not this is a valid request on her part (she might have some actual reasons), my issue is that I am POA...and it feels like I could be facing some issues of being accused of doing this via force or other means. Nothing is further from the truth...but, I feel like I am being put in a position of having legal hassles from brother once Mom passes. Mom is doing so much better now! I think it took a few weeks to reach therapeutic levels of diltazem...but she has been very alert and talkative. Doing very well, getting out to her support group and even out shopping. Then this comes up out of now where. With the way Mom is these last couple weeks...she might actually live to spend all her money! I told her.... why try to take it with you? Spend it first! But, I cannot distract her from this course. The family lawyer doesn't want to do this because he is sure that my brother will make a huge legal hassle...so he wants to be certain this is all cleanly and legally done. So, I guess I cannot enlist him to talk mom out of this path. Should I take her to a lawyer and leave them to hash this out between them? What could I ask of the lawyer to protect me from accusation of elder abuse....namly, talking my mom into doing this when she is Does not understand what she is doing. Remember, my brother only gets involved when he smells money. He tried to over turn Dads will because it left everything to Mom.
