Can an assigned power of attorney change a revocable trust in Arizona?
3 attorney answers
I agree with my colleagues that an estate planning attorney would need to review the documents to determine what are the powers of the agent under the power of attorney and powers of the successor trustee under the trust instrument. As your mother recently signed her estate plan she should consider addressing these questions directly with her estate planning attorney.
The above response does not establish a legal or other relationship between you and Dyer Bregman & Ferris, PLLC or its attorneys and does not guarantee that Dyer Bregman & Ferris, PLLC will take your case. You should not rely upon the firm to take any action until and unless a formal written agreement of representation is made.
Perhaps, yes, but this would be highly unusual. An attorney would need to review the trust instrument and the power of attorney to say for certain whether this is possible.
Maybe. Terms of POA and Trust control authority of fiduciaries.
Review terms of POA and Trust with your attorney to determine powers of agent and successor trustees.
