Q: 

Special power of attorney in Oregon

A:  A power of attorney is a legal instrument that individuals create and sign that gives someone else the authority to make certain decisions and act for the signer. The person who has these powers is called an ''agent'' or ''attorney-in-fact.'' The signer is the ''principal.'' As a principal, if the principal''s decisions conflict with those of the agent, the principal''s decision will govern, assuming that the agent confers with the principal prior to taking an action. If an agent has acted on the principal''s behalf and acted within the scope of authority granted by the power of attorney, then the principal may be obligated by the terms and...

Q: 

Combination undergrad degree w/ a law degree?

A:  While you could go to law school right after you finish your BS/BA, the debt and the time committment would not be to your liking. It would be better for your financial bottom line to get your paralegal certification while doing your undergrad, if possible, and then go to work for a government agency that specializes in disability issues. Paralegals are the ones who do the grunt work and work with the attorneys involved in such cases. You will get an up close perspective as to how law is practiced, and observe court practices. While you are still in school, check the local firms in your area, or local government agencies and tell them that you are a student and would like to ''job shadow'' someone in that specialty...

Q: 

unregistered enduring power of attorney use

A:  Does the EPA have a limitation on only being able to be used if the donor loses capacity or is it a full EPA? It is a full EPA which was made in 2000 after she suffered her first stroke and was being treated with antipsychotic drugs. However it was not used until a doctor declared my mother mentally incapable in 2005. I have checked with the Public Guardian''s office and they have told me it was never registered therefore should not have been used. None of her close family were even aware that the power existed until after she had died. I checked with her bank (all of her money, savings investments had been taken before she died including 87,000 which she received only three months before)...

Q: 

x-husband power of attorney

A:  You are not personally liable for your ex-husband's debts or obligations. You are only responsible for debts you incurred jointly. You can get a limited and temporary power of attorney for the bank account. Unless he has a will and has listed you as the executrix of that will, you have no financial obligations as to his debts after the divorce. If you are executrix of his estate, then you might be responsible for any debts that his estate did not cover after his death. Janet, I'm sorry, but this is wrong. An executor is not personally responsible for any debts that an estate cannot pay. If this were so, then no one would want to serve as executor. If there are debts that an estate cannot pay, either due to not having...

Q: 

If you have power of attorney on someone can they sell your home without your consent?

A:  I work in the legal field... There are two types of POAs. Special and General. If your client has a general POA then the recipient person has the legal ability to act unconditionally. They may buy, sell, lease, or rent property in the other person''s name. Possibilities are almost endless, however most banks nowadays will not let the recipient open, close, or draft from checking or saving accounts without further proof. I would suggest that your client IMMEDIATELY seek a lawyer to revoke that power of attorney, in writing, and serve a copy in person, or via certified mail. Additionally they should try to obtain all copies of that POA back. Some counties also require that a copy of the POA be filed in the local...

Q: 

power of attorney can be amended under MA law?

A:  I would execute a new power of attorney rather than trying to amend the old one.  I say that for two reasons.  First, whether you amend or execute a new power of attorney, you will have to go through these  very important steps:   (1) If possible, physically collect the first power of attorney from the original agent and destroy it.  If that is not an easy thing to do, such as in a case where the old agent lives out of state, send a letter by certified mail telling the old agent that the power of attorney is no longer valid and asking her to return it to you....

Q: 

What type of power of attorney is needed to allow someone to rent a home for me?

A:  A power of attorney is a legal instrument that individuals create and sign that gives someone else the authority to make certain decisions and act for the signer. The person who has these powers is called an ''agent'' or ''attorney-in-fact.'' The signer is the ''principal.'' The principal must have mental capacity to make the power of attorney at the time of signing. A person who is unconscious cannot make a valid power of attorney. As a principal, if the principal''s decisions conflict with those of the agent, the principal''s decision will govern, assuming that the agent confers with the...

Q: 

Change of Address for PCT Applications

A:  The short answer is that my little firm has found the PCT help line to be quite helpful.   The longer answer would be either (i) send in a letter based on the content of a USPTO form of the same kind -- remove so-and-so as the correspondence address and replace it with this one, or a revocation and new power of attorney and/or (ii) send in replacement pages of your Request to reflect the changes.   But ask the help desk; they''re really quite helpful. Regards....
