A: Do not agree to sign any such document or you will lose your home and have nothing to show for it. THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE! YOU NEED TO SPEAK TO AN ATTORNEY WHO IS LICENSED IN YOUR STATE FOR LEGAL ADVICE. This is merely suggestions for you to think about in discussing your situation with the local attorney.

A: The fact that you are hesitant shows that you don’t trust giving her a Power of Attorney. So don’t give it to her; make your own decisions.
