I would ask the court if it is allowable to neglect her care to pay past bills. I don't know how anyone can be fed for 100.00 a month. That's only 23.25 weekly. Not including water, power, rent. Housing another person costs money, no matter how minimal, they still require resources.
I would figure out your monthly bills and petition for a percentage. If there are 5 people in the house ask for 20% of the monthly expenses, if there are 3, petition for 33%. This would not include payments to you for your services, that would be extra. Be prepared to provide actual bills with actual proof of payment, if you get any assistance that needs to be calculated, if your gas bill is 150.00 and you get a credit of 100.00, your actual bill is 50.00. Are you following? I can read from your responses that English is not your 1st language, no offense intended, I am trying to simplify so you understand completely. We use alot of slang and multiple meaning words that cause confusion, but you know that.
Approach this without any emotion, put the paperwork together and show the court how much you spend caring for mom, how many hours you spend caring for her, keep a daily calendar and list everything you do for her. This will make a greater impression than any tears or upset would.
I hope you get what you are hoping for in this difficult situation.
Bro must be her financial POA? What does he do with the remainder of that money?
Get this on their radar asap, he can actually be prosecuted for taking her money and not paying her expenses.
Let us know how you deal with it.
You should be being paid the same amt per hour. So if sister did 48hrs for the weekend and and you did 120 for 5 days, you should be paid accordingly. You don't mention how much he gives you monthly.
