Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You could actually file a complaint with the nursing board, because that is grounds for them to suspend or revoke her nursing license.
You also can get the original of that PoA and tear it up, which would revoke the PoA. A PoA that is granted may be revoked by giving notice to the PoA and for protection tearing up or destroying the original and any copies she may have if possible.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
