Yes, you will need a lawyer that will be paid for by mom's funds. Do they have a prenup agreement? How long have they been married? Another possibility would be to call Adult Protective Services to report your concerns. Explain the situation completely, be honest about EVERYTHING, leave nothing out!

Does her medical POA state that you can make decisions related to her living situation? A good resource to find an attorney is the website AVVO. You can post your questions, explain the situation and receive responses free of charge. If you have POA I don't think that he has say in where she lives, though I could be wrong, and laws vary by state. If you think you may end up in court, make sure the attorney has a significant amount of litigation for their practice. AVVO will tell you that also. A wills, trusts, POA attorney will not be sufficient from the sounds of it.
