There, Ms. Lemen's children lost part of the inheritance they expected from Mr. Reineck's estate because their mother (Ms. Lemen) and Mr. Reineck created durable financial attorney forms in favor of each other and then their respective children. After Ms. Reineck died, Mr. Reineck's POA controlled. It empowered his children to move his assets in and out of his estate. They moved most of his assets out because Mr. Reineck's will would have given some property to Ms. Lemen's children--something Mr. Reineck's children succeeded in avoiding. Note, Ms. Lemen's children had already received nearly all Ms. Lemen's property from her estate when she died. You can see the possibility for abuse here, though.
