In July 2000, my mother had her will drawn up, naming me as executor, a Statutory Durable POA
prepared, and a Declaration of Guardian form prepared. I was named as executor, POA agent, and guardian, with my brother named as alternate executor, POA
agent, and guardian.
My mother has been diagnosed with dementia. In November 2012, anticipating increasingly reduced mental capacity, we met with an attorney for the preparation
of a Directive to Physicians, a Health Care POA, and (another) Statutory Durable POA naming my brother and me as joint agents. My mother, nor I, remembered her having
almost the same documents prepared in 2000.
QUESTION: Which Statutory Durable POA, the one prepared in 2000 naming me as sole agent or the one prepared in Nov 2000 naming my brother and me as joint agents, would the court consider the legitimate working document ?
