Good luck and best wishes.

What I want to know is is it legal for me to sign his name instead of mine when I am acting as his agent
Hello - are you there?
If it involves a financial transaction that's described in the power of attorney document itself, yes.
If it is about a matter that's not described in the power of attorney document, no.
Power of attorney documents are very specific. It's not a one-size-fits-all document.
ok - thanks
That's why it's so important for you to read the actual power of attorney document that you are acting on behalf of.
