Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have an EPOA for an elderly friend which has been supplied to various organisations & now her son who lives in Macau wants a new EPOA to include him & i would like to know what this means in terms of the existing EPOA?
Expert:  Leon replied 1 year ago.

Good Afternoon

The existing EPOA has to be revoked for the new one to be valid.

Him Being in Macau is going to be an issue as he is too far to be able to do anything.

If you and him are to be the attorney's then you have to be able to act on your own because him not being here is going to be difficult if not impossible.

But the one you have has to be revoked. I hope this makes sense?
