Does the POA have to be filed in the courthouse?The Power of Attorney was issued through the county jail by a notary where my daughter is. I did not go to court for it. Power of Attorney was given to me by my daughter to be my grandchild legal guardian, I live in Fl. my daughter is incarserated, I contacted the father of the child trying to establish a relationship between them, he has not been in her live since she was 2/3 yrs. He offered to help and asked if I allow him to keep her for 2 months. He lives in Ma. now he does not want to bring her back. Does this Power of Attorney has jurisditition in Ma? Can I go and collect my grandchild?
