How to defend my use of Power of Attorney in Atlantic County, New Jersey?

Posted on Wed Oct 21, 2015, on Power of Attorney

From our “Ask a Question” mailbag: My brother named me his agent under his Atlantic County, New Jersey power of attorney. Now my sister claims I embezzled and stole money using that power of attorney. How do I clear my name?

As agent, you are permitted to retain an Atlantic County Surrogates Court Attorney to assist you in filing a Formal Accounting of all your actions as Agent. This accounting is then provided to all interested parties, who are free to either accept the terms or object. If they file objections, you are then able to address these objections in front of a judge. In the end, the judge then rules on the evidence presented. If you have done nothing wrong, you are given a release of liability by the judge.

Your sister is making serious claims against you. It is in your best interests to use the courts to your advantage and obtain a release.
