My father is mad at me because he wanted to get the Covid vaccine but the doctors say he can't have it because he's allergic to the flu vaccine. So, they refuse because it could kill him and he's mad at me because of it. He says he'll take me off and put my brother as his POA. Can he do that without taking me to court? I was acting in his well being. So, if I did nothing wrong can he do that and can I fight him? My brother now lives with him with his partner who has been haressing me. I think they been brainwashing him into turning against me. Not a good environment he's in.

Read your POA it should tell you how you have to be discharged, ie in writing.

If it doesn't say, go to your states attorney general website and read up on what the state requirements are.

Assuming your father doesn't have  dementia at a level that interferes with his thought process, he can do anything he wants to discharge you and replace you with someone else.    It's his prerogative.   And he has no obligation to sue you to remove you from service.

I'm not sure if the procedure differs from state to state but he just needs to get the documents for his state (it can be downloaded from legal websites on the internet) and I think he will still need to have it notarized with 2 witnesses who are not also the new PoAs. This is how we did my mom's and MIL's PoA and their paperwork has been accepted everywhere. But if your dad already has a diagnosis of dementia or cognitive impairment in his medical records, he cannot make this change without the current PoA being able to strongly contest it.

Is your Dad allergic to eggs? If so, this is why he can't take the flu shot and now the COVID. Eggs are used in both. So tell Dad its not you but the doctor. And the doctor has the right to refuse to give it to him.

I remember your previous posts. If it were me, I would tell Dad to go ahead and revoke the POA and assign the brother. Then I would tell brother and partner they are on their own. I would help from a distance because of the nasty partner. If at anytime u feel Dad maybe abused in some way then call APS. Please, don't allow these men to abuse you.

You don't need to go to court to change a POA. It's just a notarized form, and people can change it every day if they want.

If you've been acting as his POA, I assume that means he's not competent to handle his affairs. A POA doesn't instantly hand over power to the person named as POA. It's in place for WHEN you can't act in your own interests.

If your father is not currently suffering from dementia, he can appoint anyone he likes to be his POA. He would be wise to do this through an attorney, rescinding POA to you, and appointing instead his son. If you father is diagnosed with dementia, and still intends to do this, it may be time for you to go to court with the POA and the papers that diagnose your Dad as unable to act in his own behalf, and get guardianship appointed. If your Dad does change POA it would be "normal" to change it to the people actually living with him and giving him care. If you suspect them, with evidence, of wrongdoing you can ask APS to check on any abuse you suspect.
POA is conferred by a competent person on another willing to act in his behalf when he is unable to act for himself. While still competent anyone can change his or her own POA whenever he likes.
