It is POSSIBLE, but highly unlikely. Adult persons who have been judged legally 'incompetent' to handle their own affairs, must have someone named as either their Guardian or their Conservator.

No. First, the POA must be a Durable POA, executed when the principal was competent, to continue after the principal has become incompetent. If that is the case, the court must appoint a guardian if the AIF can no longer serve.

Louisiana your husband had a stroke and his kids are trying to get power of attorney?

If the husband has become mentally incompetent as a result of the stroke, he would not be considered mentally competent to grant a power of attorney to anyone. A power of attorney that is granted during the time of one's incompetency would generally not be considered valid. If a person is mentally incompetent, an interested person could generally petition a probate court (in the county in which the mentally incompetent person resides) to have a guardian of the person and the property appointed.


Can an incompentent revoke power of attorney?

No, a legally incompetent person can no longer act for themselves. A General Power of Attorney expires when the principal becomes incompetent. A Durable Power Of Attorneyremains effective even after the principal becomes incompetent. In that case, the Durable POA would be extinguished if someone petitioned the court and was appointed the conservator or guardian of the principal.
