It might be best to get professional advice anyway. The thing is, your contract would be with your stepdad, and if he's not competent to enter in to a contract you're going to have trouble with it. No reason I can see, though, why you shouldn't all agree terms amongst yourself first; then get it put in writing; then get it signed formally. The key points to focus on would be: how much, who's paying, and what happens if his care needs increase beyond what you are able or willing to provide?

Are you sure you want to do this? What are the other options for looking after him?

So what should I do get a contract written by a lawyer with my stepbrother that I will be paid for looking after my stepdad because he did mention we should put something in writing but should it be done at a lawyer?

I think the question is not are they still married; the question is whose name is on the deed. I think you should probably consult an eldercare attorney. Both about the disposition of property and to get a caregiving contract put in place for your stepdad's care.

How is the nursing home being paid? From mom's funds? Medicaid?

Whoa!

Wouldn't it be best, if you can, to get together with your stepbrother and any other siblings and thrash out what the care plan is? The photo-taking sounds like the distrust could be mutual, and if there's no need for it on either side then the sooner you can sweep it away the better.

Are you living in your mother and step-father's home, or what's the arrangement that means you should get compensation for looking after him?

As a starting point, though, if your stepbrother has taken something that belongs solely to your stepfather, then it isn't that it doesn't matter, and you should keep track of what's going where, but I wouldn't make it my problem if I were you. It's between him and his Dad.

No he is not power of attorney for his dad because the family were all in denial I kept telling them for a whole year your dad is forgetting and the doctor said he should not be driving but soon has I told them and my stepdads doctor he bounced some checks, boom they showed up!! I also told them someone needs to be power of attorney or it will go into a public guardian trustee and now he is applying for it make take months. Will my Mom be affect by this financial?

do you have a good relationship with this stepbrother? Are you being paid to be his dad's caregiver?

Whose name is the house in? Is his father still competent to express his wishes? Does he with this son to be his POA, meaning that he is empowered to carry out his father's wishes?

Is he removing the car because he feels that if it's there, stepdad will attempt to drive it? Or is her removing it because he feels like it belongs to him now?

Is your mother still using the car?
