Re: estate power of attorny
Please accept my condolences for your losses. A power of attorney ceases when then individual who signed it is no longer living. That does not mean that there are no legal means available to you in the event that your are concerned that an elderly citizens health, safety and financial resources are endangered by their current living circumstances. This does; however, require action through a court of law. Please feel free to contact me in the event that you are interested in pursuing legal assistance.
