Custom Question 1
If somebody has a power of attorney they’re a fiduciary, and they’re supposed to only take actions for the benefit of the person they’re helping and protecting. So be cautious. Someone with the power of attorney, and attorney-in-fact the power holder, can’t take the property of the person they’re supposed to be protecting. Miss use of a power of attorney may be a crime in Florida, it’s very serious and there may be severe civil remedies if you breach your fiduciary duty, misuse funds, engage in conflicted transactions, or engage in acts of self-dealing. If you believe that there’s been a misuse of a power of attorney, talk to an attorney who is familiar with Chapter 709 of Florida statutes.
