Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you.There is no need for a lawyer here.You just need a notary.Most banks or the court house can help you with that.

Here are POA forms for Florida if you need them.I would save your money here, these forms are perfectly legal if you just sign it in front of a notary.

As the attorney stated above you do not need an attorney. It is legal to fill it out yourself. Just follow the link provided and the POA form will come up and you can fill it in and then go have it notarized.

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.
