Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I hope this message finds you well, present circumstances excluded. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of experience handling matters of this nature. It is a pleasure to assist you today.
Under Maryland law, a person (or principal or your husband in this case) can grant a second person (or agent or you in this case) power of attorney through a written and signed legal document stating that the agent has power to act on the principal’s behalf. There is no legal requirement that an attorney sign the power of attorney document in order to have it notarized. Sometimes, a witness can be present before the notary that also signs, but that person does not have to be an attorney.
So, it is possible for a notary to sign your PofA form that you have completed without an attorney signature or being present.

Yes, most post offices have a notary, as do most banks and law firms.
