I am currently a POA (Power of attorney) over my sister in the state of Kentucky. In February of this year (2017) we signed a general POA agreement found online and had it reviewed and notorized by a local attorney. As the year went on the principal has ruined my good name in the small city we reside in, as well as stolen money from her partner, lied about current and previous medical conditions, and has caused emotional stress to our mother and her children all because I wouldn't believe her lies. I'm fed up with her and how she has treated me and I want out of her life. The general POA form grants me power over her all financial and medical decisions "indefinitely or until revoked by principal or by principals death". It does NOT state how I can get out. Please help! Here is the link to the general form for reference;
You simply need to resign, in writing, and deliver that resignation to the principal. And of course you then need to stop acting as PoA.
That said, it sounds as if it would be wise to also consult with a local attorney who can provide some guidance on how to best protect yourself too!
