No, a POA can only be revoked or amended by the person who awarded it, or in some instances by the court. If the person is not competent enough to amend or revoke the order and it is necessary to do so, a petition of guardianship and/or conservatorship will need to be filed with the Probate Court.

A Power of Attorney is executed voluntarily by the principal who wishes to grant another person the authority to act for them on their behalf. The principal must have the legal capacity to execute a POA.

No. First, a person with dementia is legally incapacitated. They can't grant a Power of Attorney to anyone. Second, a Power of Attorney is a legal document that must be signed by the principal in order to be valid.

A person cannot file a power of attorney without your knowledge. You are the only person that can grant a power of attorney to represent you.

If you are the principal you grant a power of attorney to another by naming them your attorney in fact. If you are the attorney in fact under a power of attorney you cannot assign your power to anyone else.

The principal is the person granting the power of attorney. The grant is valid until revoked or the person dies.

In some cases, the court Magistrates are able to grant Power of Attorney for an incompetent person. What a magistrate can and can't do varies by local laws.

A power of attorney is granted by the principal. If they are unable to confirm that grant, the power of attorney is considered revoked. And a power of attorney can only represent a living person.

A person (the principal) can only grant a Power of Attorney to an attorney-in-fact to handle their solely owned property. For example, if you own real property with another person, your attorney-in-fact could only sell your interest in the property. They have no authority over your co-owner's interest.

No, power-of-attorney is not awarded. It is granted by the person that it is for. His sister could grant him a power of attorney. A brother could be appointed the guardian of his sister if she is a minor and he is an adult.

A Power of Attorney is customarily notarized. However, the bigger question is the validity of a Power of Attorney that is executed by an incompetent person. In general, it is not valid, as the person does not have the capacity to grant the powers to another. Therefore, if there is reason to execute a Power of Attorney (such as, in anticipation of potentially dangerous surgery), it should be done prior to the event that could lead to incompetence.

Only a living person can grant a power of attorney. The court can issue a letter of authorization when an estate is opened.

Not without a power of attorney. The court can grant the right with the proper documentation and forms.

The grantor can grant a power of attorney to anyone. They just have to fill out the forms.

There is nothing automatic about the process. Either they are granted the power by the person in question or the court has to grant it.

No. Only the particular individual on behalf of whom the POA is acting, can grant a Power of Attorney. That task, or responsibility, can NOT be delegated to any other individual.

Marriage does not automatically create a power of attorney. They have to specifically grant the rights.

Apply to the probate court. They will review the situation and grant the power of attorney.

A person who is incompetent cannot grant powers of attorney. Someone would need to petition the court to be appointed their guardian or conservator if that person needs assistance in handling their affairs. You should seek the advice of an attorney.

The principal must grant a Power of Attorney voluntarily and they must have the legal capacity to do so. You should discuss it with an attorney who can review your situation and explain the options and consequences.The principal must grant a Power of Attorney voluntarily and they must have the legal capacity to do so.

No, of course not. A power of attorney does not grant access to the principal's assets for your own personal use. That type of action by a fiduciary is against the law.If the principal is deceased the power of attorney is extinguished.No, of course not.

No. A power of Attorney is a written, singed and witnessed document. It is not necessary that the grantor speak.
