It is unclear whose will needs to be revised. If it is the will of a deceased person, it cannot be revised. If it is the will of a living person, the only person who can revise it is the living person, who can only revise it (with the assistance of an attorney recommended) if he or she still has...Read more »

It sounds like the person you care for has either been civilly committed or the court has appointed a Guardian or Conservator for her. If she has been civilly committed then the state of Oregon will be responsible for determining where she lives and coordinating her care. If she has a guardian then...Read more »
The grantor of the power can appoint one or more agents to serve by naming them in the document. It is important to note whether the power is "joint" (meaning all agents must agree) or "joint and several" (meaning any agent can act without consent of the other). In practice I do...Read more »

That is indeed a complicated set of facts. It sounds like your doctor has indicated your condition is related to a work related chemical exposure. As such, this may be considered a work injury. If you have not already provided notice to your employer of a work injury, you have 120 days from the...Read more »
My mom signed a paper saying that she wants me to have all items of hers left in the home. Because she gave the rest of her children what she wanted them to have when she was alive and knew that they would give me a hard time. How can I protect myself, I know they want to be spiteful because mom... Read more »

The question of what you can or should do is not something that can be answered that easily. You should consult with an attorney, who can get the information necessary to properly guide you. Questions you should be prepared to answer will include what your relationship is to the man and who is the...Read more »
I got POA 4 years ago. She was diagnosed with dementia 3 years ago. Her husband has passed away. Her doctors (primary, cardiologist, and neurologist) say she cannot live alone, but she wants to stay at home. I cannot live with her (I am married with 3 kids of my own). Besides the dementia, she has... Read more »
You can certainly provide her with a place to live, but you can't force her to live there. A power of attorney authorizes you to act for her, but doesn't give you the right to control her - for that you would need a guardianship. Her condition may or may not support having a guardian appointed.
Attorney for mother who suffered abuse and injury that led to death requested that court relieve him from duty and was denied. The daughter who brought the case refuses to release him. Attorney then contacted the uncle and something was discussed. We were just informed by attorney that he... Read more »
Why would you want an attorney to continue to work for you or your mother despite that attorney clearly wishing to resign? How zealous do you think that attorney will be for your cause if you are forcing him to perform against his will? Slavery comes to mind.
Mother in law has retained an attorney who is threatening court ordered forced sale under CRS 38-28-101. @ closing, she signed an affidavit stating she would not require repayment in part or in whole for the assistance with the down payment on 12-07-2016.

My parents passed from covid within 22 hours of each other. My father passed 1st and my mother 2nd surviving him by 22 hours on a ventilator. After... Read more »
You are correct on both accounts. If your mom did not survive your dad by at least 120 hours, then she is deemed to have predeceased him. That would leave his children as the sole heirs of his estate (having died without a will). The insurance proceeds should be paid to you and your other...Read more »
Is they are divorcing then she would likely get half the proceeds. If there is not a divorce then the proceeds will be wired to a joint account or an account the parties designate.

My stepmother was in a nursing home which was partially paid for by Medicaid. She recently passed away. She had a small whole life insurance policy (under $10,000) that the social worker knew about when they helped her apply for Medicaid assistance. The policy value was over $8000 at the time.... Read more »
Depends on the original source of the money, and when your name was put on the account. I assume your father needs to qualify for Medicaid to pay the nursing home care, and to do so Medicaid requires that your father use his own assets until he has paid down to the level necessary to receive...Read more »
