No, it doesn't change her right to "determine her proxy".
There is no period of tie after which this changes. The only way to change it is to file a motion with the court.
It isn't statutory in nature, it's determined by case law and you would have to open a separate question with an Additional Services offer to get someone to research the case law and provide cites. Just to warn you, it is probably going to be a little expensive because not only is case law research expensive but the online databases we normally use are very expensive. It's a couple of hundred dollars for a basic search on the service I use and most of them are about the same.That's just what it costs to pay the database company.
