My Brother in Law took it upon himself with only a Health Power of Attorney signed by my In Laws.. To overtake their entire Farm Trust and Bank Accounts without their consent. Legal =No.. Unfortunately we had to obtain a Lawyer for my In Laws to get back their own interest. My Brother in Law just had an estate auction without allowing my In Laws to review what was to be sold.. We found out a few days before the auction and got the paperwork filed in time but not signed by a Judge before the auction took place. We have now filed for Conservator/Guardian for my In Laws best interest and will be also obtaining a Guardian ad Litem for them hopefully this week before other items are sold without their consent.. Not sure how he is using this Health Power of Attorney so wide spread as it isnt a General Power of Attorney is specifically states for Health Related only.. :(
Now, after the auction has taken place because of lack of communication. My In Laws are very hurt and disillusioned that he could have so much 'power' as they are not in a Nursing Home but he talked them into a 'temporary' apartment for Assisted Living as my mother in law has high blood pressure and my father in law is about 75-80% recovered from a stroke a year ago. (Talking /Walking with walker/cane).
ALSO, My brother in Law says that he put my Father in Law on the VA (Veterans Administration) End of Life coverage that expired about 6 months ago?? Not sure why he would have done that but he did how do I go about getting him coverages now that he is recovering?? My Brother in Law said that is the reason he had to place my Mother In Law there also as her Insurance is paying some of his care charges and that was the reason for the secret auction was to raise funds for their continued care in the Nursing Home Assisted Living.. I will be new to dealing with the Insurance end and need to get things figured out for them.. Any help will be appreciated :)
