What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Texas
When my father passed away, my mother became the beneficiary of his estate. My mother had a stroke last year and became mentally incapable of handling her financial affairs. My father had appointed my oldest brother as Statutory Durable Power of Attorney if anything should happen to my mother.
The problem now is that my oldest brother is keeping all the financial activities, such as bank balance, where the money is, how much is being spent of it, and so on.. a complete secret from the rest of us. There are three children in this family, myself, my middle brother, and the oldest brother who is Power of Attorney. My mother has even asked my oldest brother to share the bank statements with myself and my middle brother so that we would all equally know what was going on. He simply won't do it and becomes highly irate when it is even mentioned.
We suspect he is spending large portions of the money on himself and that's why he won't divulge or share any info with the rest of us. We can't afford an attorney, what can we do?
Any help would be tremendously appreciated! Thanks in advance for your time.
