My Brother and I Both Have POA?

My father had a stroke in November of 2015. Since then my brother, who lives in the same state, Florida (I reside in N.C.) has taken a ton of the responsibility for everything concerning Dad.

I have not been sent any papers to sign or seen any legal documents, but my brother states that we are both the POA and executor of Dad's estate. The bulk of it is in an annuity. Not that I don't trust my brother, but he and his wife (whom I don't trust) have taken out 20,000 dollars already from Dad's account to help with Dad.

This I didn't question and in fact felt he deserved something. My brother states that I can not be sent any money till 60 months after Dad has been determined ill and that only he can take money from the annuity. Is this true in Florida?

Your brother must be able to support every penny that he has withdrawn from your father's account. I strongly suggest you immediately consult with an attorney in your area experienced in POAs and elder care/abuse. The attorney will be able to address your concerns about your brother and his handling of the estate.

You should expect an emotional response from your brother, however, it is important that your father and his estate are protected.
