Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist. First, I'm sorry for your loss.
Since your daughter has passed away, it is not possible to obtain a power of attorney for her. A power of attorney is only legally obtainable and legally enforceable if the person is alive and of sound mind.
Instead, you would have to open her estate and be appointed as the personal representative/executrix/administratrix. Once appointed, you could dispose of/transfer her property to her next of kin, etc.
If your daughter's entire estate is worth less than $100,000.00, you could file a small estate affidavit and avoid the full probate process. Here's a good link you can read: https://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/publications/pdf_publications/rtopr31.pdf
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Thanks!
