Hi Mr. Tex, You referrenced me to two Power of Attorney documents for California early last week or the week before. The Notary that reviewed the documents and DID notarize them advised me that these documents were out of date and would not be effective. Can you reference me to the latest documents for California General Power of Attorney and California Healthcare Power of Attorney, or to someone who would provide these for me? Perhaps I should use Legal Zoom or one of those services do you think? Please advise. Cordially, XXXXXX XXXXXX
Thank you. I thought that must be the case. If not, all the earlier Powers of Attorney would then be null and void I would think if new ones obviated the older ones. I think the Notary was mistaken. You did the right thing with the forms you recommended. Thank you and I apologize for bothering you again on this subject. Cordially, XXXXX XXXXX
