What are the steps necessary to gain access to my ailing mother's personal effect, from an uncooperative family member. I have legal and durable power of attorney.
1 Answer from Attorneys
If you have a durable general or financial power of attorney, which provides for you to gather up and protect her assets, including personal property, then you have legal authority to demand possession of those items from the family member. If they refuse, you should file an action in the probate division of the superior court to gain the possession of those items.
