Customer Question

We are in California. My mother and father have a will and a trust. The power of attorney is outdated as they want to change the agent who is currently my brother. Can we make both my mother and my father who are married the principals on one power of attorney, and myself and my sister as agents in case one of them become incapacitated.
JA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: California
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: The power of attorney has not. I am not sure about the trust and the will. I do not believe so.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No thank you.

Here mother and father each get a separate POA.They can each name you as agents.Assuming you get along with your sister this would work .But each individual has a separate POA you cannot combine them to one document.
