My grandmother currently has a family friend designated as her POA. She would now like me to be her POA. How can we make this change?
ATTORNEY ANSWER BY MARGARET L. CROSS:
All she has to do is execute a new power of attorney and notify the old agent that the old power of attorney was revoked. This is easily done through an attorney. The attorney will need to meet with your grandmother alone to determine her wishes and establish an attorney-client privilege.
