If in deed my parents were both mentally incompetent..and they signed a revocation of power of attorney letter and had it notarized, would this be valid or not...based on the hypothetical fact that they are incompetent?
2) Please indicate a website and/or phone number to bring a complaint to the bar that pertains to the lawyers in Orlando Fl in zip code 32809 also would this site or phone number give me confirmed information as to whether or not they possess valid licenses....if i simply gave their names. Actually i there an international bar that can ascertain all validly license lawyers?
3) Also can you provide a website that provides free samples of revocation of power of attorney that i can simply put in the names etc and have my parents sign and notarize
Finally my parents are in Jamaica at the moment.. and I'm not sure when they plan on returning to Florida...can a lawyer form Jamaica with a Fl licensing as well take care of all matters in the event that I might need one.
Can you recommend an excellent lawyer in the Poinciana Fl area..zip 34759 or the Montego Bay Jamaica area
Incidentally what is your area of expertise in law and where do you currently practice. are you in Florida?
O yeah..is there a particular doctor that I need to take my parents to for the mentally competent evaluation?

The best place to start for mental health is with your parents primary care physician. They are usually the most familiar with your parents situation.

Sorry--I did not mean to miss that question. If your parents were incompetent, then the revocation would not be valid. Incompetence is hard to prove after the fact, so the sooner you can get them evaluated by a physician, the better. The fact that the document was notarized bears little if no bearing on their competence at the time of signing--a notary only certifies that they signed in his/her presence, or they swore that they signed the document. That is all.

As far as attorneys in that area, I made a few calls and the best reference I received was for Draper Law Office--they are somewhat of a general practice firm. My colleague has worked with and against them in court and says they seem to know their stuff. The number is(###) ###-#### Good luck
