As the oldest of 5 children & only daughter, several years ago, took mom to law office to draw up a POA & Will to protect her. Backstory: Mom had taken in my (40 yr old) YB years ago, who was homeless & not working b/c "she felt sorry for him". Eventually, he became mentally & financially controlling over her. She went into debt paying off loans for him & scams he fell for online.
She managed to only sign the Will. After that Lawyer felt mom's fear, state of mind & of YB retaliation prevented them from continuing.
Mom had no assets other than her car (joint with y/b), furniture & clothes & 2 insurance policies. He took the car when I brought her to live with me 4 yrs ago.
When Dr. Placed her in care home 2 years ago, all her furniture was donated to Thrift stores & insurance policies cashed in to pay for carehome. (YB, who again was homeless, was offered to take anything or all furniture, he couldn't).
Mom is still alive, all the things listed in the Will are gone. I don't have receipts for the donations.
This has been weighing heavily on my conscience for so long.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
