Ward, are you talking about the court recording of the POA? Would a copy be available until it is registered with the courts? At least in some cases a copy is sufficient, I expect, depending on where you're located.

We went through the same thing last year. My sister thought she was all that and a bag of chips and took everything from my mother and hid all her money and never told my mother. Mom changed her POA to her brother who has her best interest at heart. It took both my sister and I out of the loop which was the right thing to do and put someone in to take care of mom. I also had Dept of aging protective services invesitigate and most of mom's money back since sister would not give up the money. They interviewed mom and looked through all the bank statements and found everything and it didn't cost us a dime. They were lifesavers....... There is a great deal of help out there with the dept. of aging. Just look online if you can. I got all my info from this website and it helped me tremendously.

Ward,

If you are a man, you need to stop being HEARTBROKEN already and instead TAKE SOME ACTION!!

The way you describe your sister, she is abusive, evasive, and disrespectful to all parties. You say that your father has a lot of money and wants your name to be "put forward", but oh, boo-hoo, your sister won't give him access to his bank book to pay for it. Well, you and your head-buryin' brother need to figure out how to "put forward" your own money to get the POA changed to YOU exclusively. Then your father can allow you to reimburse yourselves for what should be a small expenditure.

Your sister may end up benefitting form this too, as she will have more time to focus on cutting back on her own gas and devising other personal austerity measures.

good luck.

With multiple POAs involved, do all have to agree before any action is taken? If only one can take action, please ensure you are not in jeopardy by the actions of another. Bank transactions track the person taking action, but those actions can still conflict with the resources you need to manage for the person's benefit.
