I am named as attorney in fact in a durable power of
I am named as attorney in fact in a durable power of attorney document executed by my mother. I want to endorse a check that will be deposited into her account, and this will be a recurring event. I plan to have a rubber stamp made to make this easy. Please tell me if this styling for the stamp makes sense to you:[Mother's Name]by [My Name]Attorney-in-fact underPOA dated 6/5/2016She has accounts with a mega-bank. Do I need to send their legal group a copy of this durable POA before signing checks for deposit? I would think that checks deposited into her account would be considered a low risk transaction from the bank's viewpoint.
Michigan specific question as it relates to health care
Michigan specific question as it relates to health care directives. Specifically, the durable power of attorney for health care as recognized by statute in Michigan (Section(###) ###-#### ***** 386 of 1998) specifies the naming of a patient advocate, an "individual who is 18 years of age or older to exercise powers concerning care...".My question is does the Michigan law by virtue of expressly stating the naming of one individual preclude the naming of more than one person acting in agreement on such matters. Specifically, I would like to suggest to my Dad that he appoint any two of his three children to make decisions on his behalf. My Dad is unfortunately terminally ill. He has made his wishes clear to all of us, but it is difficult to name one individual given our family circumstances.Is this possible? Important that we not create a document that we learn in the moment of truth is not acceptable to those that would need to act on behalf of the direction provided. If it is acceptable, can you propose language that would accomplish our objective (any two of three named individuals in agreement).Thanks. Jim.

My question is in regard to Durable Power of Attorney. I am
My question is in regard to Durable Power of Attorney. I am my mother's POA (for financial) and it clearly states on the paperwork that I am appointed 'Attorney-in-Fact;. In the event my Attorney-in-Fact is unable to serve for any reason or if my Attorney-in-Fact is currently my spouse and we become legally separated or our marriage is dissolved, I name..." # ***** or # ***** "as successor to my Attorney-in-Fact". The situation is this.... #2 on as one of the successors is my sister who has been digging into my mother's finances and causing complications used the POA paperwork to gain financial knowledge from a collection agency - that I was not even aware of as I had never been notified by the first party nor the collection agency that there was a bill (now paid). My concern is that if she was able to gain this financial knowledge with supplying paperwork with her as a successor and I am still completely capable & alive - this could snowball into something much worse. Is it illegal for her to imply that she is the POA by sending this paperwork to the collection agency? and secondly, is there anything I can do to curtail any of her further use of the POA until I am 'not capable'. Thank you

If a parent has created a revocable trust and included in that trust is a durable power of attorney that has not been signed, can that parent then sign a different POA drawn up by a different lawyer and have that POA be considered valid. And how does that affect the original document in the trust?
