Hello, my name is Ely. I am here to help you. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice; and (2) my function is to give you honest
information and not to tell you what you necessarily wish to hear. There may be a slight
delay between your follow ups and my replies as I type out a thorough reply for you. Is it possible for an individual to assign two people separately with Power of Attorney?
The answer is yes
. This is governed by F.S. Chapter 709
If the powers are different, then each controls what their POA allows them to control.
If the powers intersect on both POAs, then it is up to the agents to decide who controls the situation, if the principal (the signor) is incapacitated. If it cannot be decided, then the Court decides based on language and intent of the POAs. Then, the Court can decide that:
-both must act together; or
-invalidate one and allow the other to act (if so, normally the holder of the POA that was signed last).
Finally, check the second POA. Often, the language will state that all other POAs before this are void. If so, then the first POA is voided.IMPORTANT INFO
