You should have a FL attorney review the current Power of Attorney.
A Power of Attorney is valid in the state of FL so long as it was validly executed in the executing state. A bank or other third party may request an opinion of counsel as to its validity. The opinion of counsel is paid by the principal, meaning the person who is trying to use the Power of Attorney.
