My question was never answered. I am, for years now, which my mother set up ,her DURABLE, not general, not springing but DURABLE power of attorney, in Virginia, USA. Now that my original question is absolutely crystal clear, can I override my mother (principal) in a decision to have my sister removed from my mother's house. She is abusing my mother, who is now forgetful, but still considered compos mentis, taking monies from her and not taking care of my mother who is no 80 and nearing completing a diagnosis of senile. My mother is unwilling to get an 30 day legally required, eviction notice for my sister to be removed from her house. AS I am my mother's ongoing durable power of attorney, can I have my sister evicted against my mother's wishes? If you are incapable of answering this question, I want a refund of the money I have paid as so far it has been a waste of time and money on my part. Thank you.
My mother cannot distinguish the difference between a tv remote control and a telephone. She is undergoing a mental evaluation at the end of which, she will undoubtedly be considered to have senile dementia but she does have these moments of clarity even if her facts are very confused. What do I need to verify legally she is now not compos mentis so I an act on her behalf? She is unsafe in the current environment and I am 3,700 miles away living in Glasgow, Scotland.
