The issue will be, was your spouse competent (able to understand what was going on around him) at the time he signed...do you know the answer to this question?
That is the way to proceed (if the goal is to void the POA), is to file suit to void the POA.IF you can prove that he was not competent? The court will void the POA
But the fact the notary was a fried of the family....or that the alternate POA's signed is not legally relevant.
This is the part of my job I don't like...when the law is not in favor of my customer. I wish I could tell you that the fact the notary is family friend, but I can only provide you information based on the law so that you can act on the best available information to you...I wish I had better news, but can only hope you recognize and understand my predicament and don't shoot the messenger.
