Legal Question

Asked on: 5/04/13, 5:20 pm

My Fiance had POA for her 85 YR old dad, who she cares for 24 hrs. She had POA. Her brothers got mad at her and Essentially bullied her dad into signing POA to them, superceding hers. His capacity was certainly questionable. He didn't remember the next day what he had signed, but that is a separate issue. SHe had joint bank accounts with her dad. The brothers went to the banks and had her removed from the accounts, and themselves added, without her father's knowledge. They say the banks made them take her off, and "roll over" the joint ststus to them. the two questions are:

Are they lying that they had to take her off joint accounts?

Is this a case of abuse of the Power of Attorney
