    Answered . As you state that you have a prior criminal case in California related to this power of attorney, this may be better directed to California attorneys, esp. as it sounds like a good bit of the relevant substantive conduct related to your question occurred in that state. Keep in mind that as your past criminal case would potentially affect possible present enforcement of the provisions of the POA (even if the POA is a Ga POA), a Ga estates/probate attorney would likely be limited in what they could or could not advise. Good luck.

Post this question for a California attorney to answer, as only attorneys licensed in California can practice there.
