my brother was in jail and he was going to make his x wife power attorey of him. she just brought the paper work in and they took it back for him to sign. anyway he didn''t want her to be anymore so we wanted to revoke it. come to fined out she had it norterzed and wittensed with out him standing in front of them. would it still be legal??? she has used it cash a 83,000.00 check at her bank and close out his account with out her name on it. iam sure she used the paper tho. he didn''t sign the back of the power of attorney when it says he was standing there. he was in jail and i asked him if there was anyone there and he said NO.
Optional Information: vancover
SIgning a power of attoprney that is notarized has to be in front of the the notary - so the ex-wife and the notary are guilty of fraud and larceny and you should report this to police and D.A. immediately. Also, your brother should sign a new paper revoking the the 1st document and get the revocation delivered to anyone who might by holding his assets.
All the best,
