The person that signs the healthcare POA is something signed by the person expresses their wishes. I am a little confused as to why they would sign a POA that does not reflect their wishes?
Ask Your Own Legal Question
Failure of the designated agent in the POA to honor what is stated in the POA is a breach of fiduciary duty that could result in a lawsuit.
Ask Your Own Legal Question
Do you have any additional questions for me?

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.
