I was also researching online, I was his POA when he was alive but did not want us (2) siblings to squabble or fight, I also knew if he gifted me the money you save yourself alot of heartache and money since gifting doesnt go thru Probate, but sadly this other sibling which I had never met, says hes going to sue me or someting, its funny how people are somethimes, this half brother, I had called him over 15 times , your father is dying, he wants to see you, oh i have a headache, oh im confused, oh i trust your judgement, oh im not ready to see him, i mean you name it, im not interested all that in money, please dont bother me, OK. So I didnt call him again, my father dies, i closed his account (and tis is where it gets tricky) Im not sure i shouldve done this, i didnt know, im not a lawyer I guess i shouldve checked first, bank didnt say anything, they never stated hey theres anothe beneficiary here. But what i can be certain of is there was no will and i did what my father told me, you know his wishes give it to grandchildren, pay my debts, funeral. And i can certainly show that was all done and paid for but certainly there will always be greed and being POA is a thankless job no matter what you do to save money they will never appreciate it. If I wouldnt have gone to CA to save my fathers things in apt. they wouldve been in trash. But now thereyre questioning what i did, or what i kept. Most of the things were garage sale items, trash, if they were so worried, get up and do something for the man, I feel for you vanessa, I see that this happened to you a while back, 2007, hope everything is ok did everything work out??
