My POA for my wife was granted before her surgery for what turned out be glioblastoma multiforme level 4 terminal brain cancer. Close to 3 months later her attorney convinced her to revoke and give someone else a POA. I was not notified for nearly two months. Given the known loss of memory and decision making post surgery should the attorney not have asked her do that as I had done nothing wrong and actually only used it twice at her request? Also, I have talked to my wife about revoking that POA and granting me a new one as to keep it in the family. If that time comes ( perhaps in the next few days ) I hope to be able to ask questions about status of her will that has not been delivered three months after last detail meeting. Other question: given the issue of when it is determined that further needless changes of POA agent are not warranted which one takes precedent? My original one before surgery, the second one or a possible third one?
There can be multiple POAs given to different people for different reasons. A POA that is replaced by another POA effectively cancels the first POA--onless the second POA says differently. Any POA can be challenged.
