    Durable Power of Attorney
    I live in VA. My uncle and I both have Durable POA for my grandmother. It says that we can respresent her independently. He has been financially exploiting her and allowing his daughter to do the same. His daughter took grandmom to an attorney today and was told "both people need to let the other person know what is going on and both people need to have access to her funds". First of all is this correct information? Secondly, how can I protect her from his exploitations if this is the case?
    Thanks.

    Can you prove that your uncle causes damages ? If YES- you have to bring an action against him.

    You can get the grandmother to revolk the power of attorney of the other.

    You can go to court and attempt to get guardianship of grandmother
