I need advice regarding revoking a POA, I am trying to move

This answer was rated:

I need advice regarding revoking a POA, I am trying to move my mother from Arkansas to Arizona. I am experiencing family battles. Do I need to be with her in order to change the POA. She is competent and in good judgement.

Thank you for your kind assistance

Hello and thank you for using JA! My goal is to provide you with excellent service and help with your legal problem.
.
If mother wants to cancel a POA she has given to someone, all she needs to do is draft up a simple statement stating that she is hereby revoking the authority of "Sue Smith" to act as her power of attorney, effective immediately. Once this is signed, dated, and notarized, it has to be personally delivered to the holder of the POA in order for it to be effective. Until it is delivered and the holder has actual knowledge of the revocation, the holder would still have the authority to act for mother.
.
It is also a good idea to deliver copies of the revocation to any banks or financial institutions where the holder may have acted for mother.

Just to be clear, I personally do not have to be on site?


 

No, as long as someone personally delivers the revocation to the holder, it is effective upon delivery. Since I am assuming that mother is the grantor of the POA, there wouldn't be any need for you to be there as it is between grantor and the holder of the POA.
.
If she has given you a POA, then until she revokes the other one, there are two legally binding POAs in existence.
