Power of Attorney
Could you please tell me if Power of Attorney can be granted to a person who is a convicted felon (multiple times for theft), and is also diagnosed with a mental illness (bipolar disorder). This person is trying to convince my in-laws to give them Power of Attorney, and we are terrified.

Re: Power of Attorney
Yes, it can be done. Have the in-laws get a
full explination of the tremendious risk of
a POA if it is in the wrong hands. POA's
should only be granted to a trustworthy
person. The law can not protect you against
a foolish choice in this regard.
