"Now what?" is a really vague question, but I am answering with the presumption that your question is "how do I make my boyfriend my medical POA?" You need to execute a medical POA and provide the hospital a copy.
You can find the form for the State of Arizona here:... Read more »

I would recommend you talk to an attorney review the Trust. Trusts with special needs considerations are usually more complex than a regular trust. It is very likely the trust may only became irrevocable after the spouse passes away, not after the first person passes away. An attorney will need to... Read more »

This is not a legal question. Unfortunately, an attorney won't be able to help with this question as this does not involve any issue requiring legal knowledge.
Is it pertinent that the defendant is actively looking for legal representation?

In Family Court, it can be important to show that you have reasonably responded to communication requests from the opposing party's attorney. If you are very close to hiring an attorney, then the opposing attorney should of course await that attorney's contact. However, if it goes days... Read more »

For SSI, countable resources are limited to $2,000 for an individual and $3,000 for a couple. However, Social Security does not count the home the SSI recepient lives in and the land it is on.

He is currently hospitalized, but will be returning to long term care facility, and probably shortly, Hospice.

If you dad is in Pennsylvania, then you should probably consult an attorney there regarding options. In Arizona, most attorneys draft all POAs as durable one, but the law may be different in PA.

If she uses... Read more »

Your question is missing important facts. Exactly how is the house titled? Tenants in common? If so, in what percentages? Or is the deed silent on that? Joint tenants with right of survivorship?

My father-in-law has basically disappeared. My brother-in-law states he is in a retirement home and the retirement home will not allow any visitors - not even family. Brother-in-law is withholding the address of the home. Something is very fishy. How do I find out what home my father-in-law is... Read more »

That is unusual. You may want to talk with a guardianship attorney about the situation. Does the brother-in-law have a power-of-attorney for your father-in-law? You may need to get the court involved to order disclosure of information and visitation privileges.
Will was made 10 days before mom died, my sister adds her name on to inherit the house. Can this qualify as undue influence
answered on Aug 27, 2019
The procedure you described appears highly questionable. You may have grounds to object to this will. The will may not qualify as a valid holographic will and/or your Mom may not have had testamentary capacity. I recommend reviewing this matter with a probate attorney as soon as possible. Once...

Several months ago, my mother (who passed away last week) put together a last will and testament (based on a form from WillForms.org for the state of Arizona). It is signed, notarized, and doubly witnessed by two individuals not receiving any property under the will.
The will names me as... Read more »

Show it to a local probate attorney. You are going to need to hire a probate attorney anyway to help you probate your mother's estate anyway. Your mother's things do not automatically vest in you; there are steps that need to be taken, and the sooner you take those steps the better.
Mom has dementia and is in a assisted living home, a very expensive home. My sister is the Executor of the will and I think she may have guardianship or POA.

You will need to review the power of attorney document itself. POAs can specify what it means for the agent to be unable or unwilling to act on behalf of the principal. If the POA does not have such language, it is best to get the other agent to resign. The resignation can be temporary or permanent.
I do not believe that my brother-in-law is the best person to care for my father. He will not provide any information about my dad's affairs or allow anyone access to his medical records to the rest of the family. There has been some misconception about the power of attorney. I am my... Read more »

You can apply for a guardianship for your father. The court has forms for a basic guardianship; you can also hire an attorney to help. You will need to notify your brother-in-law of the proceedings if he is named as your dad's agent under a power of attorney.
