Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hello there --
I am sorry to hear about this. Can you tell me what exactly it is you want to do with the power of attorney ? Do you want to give relatives in Argentina the right to act on your behalf to handle arrangements for your mother's funeral? Do you want to give the power for them to distribute any estate?
Hello again --
I am sorry but I actually do not think I can because the document must be legal in Hawaii where you sign it and then legal to use in Argentina so you might have to use an international notary through the US embassy in Argentina. This is the process when dealing with real estate transactions in most countries outside the US -- my suggestion here is that you ask your sisters or other family in Argentina to get a form from the probate court or the attorney handling the matter and ask the appropriate procedures for execution in Hawaii and use in Argentina. I might be erring on the side of caution here, but you want to make sure that the document is legal in Argentina and that is not a country where I am knowledgeable in their laws.
I am going to opt out and put your question BACK on the board in the event that another attorney can help you with these matters (we have many attorneys with many varied experiences, so you never know).
Best of Luck

Why have the attorneys in Argentina not provided you with the document you want? They should be able to do that.
You can get document in Spanish and have it translated and then notarized here.
