”Documents purchased online, Legal or not”
I’ve been instructed to get a Durable Power of Attorney for my mother. I was told to ask for a ”Durable” POA because it would allow me to make all medical decisions for her if she was not able as well as taking care of all her financial things.
I found several places on the internet where you can buy Durable POA’s, Wills and Living Wills. They are less expensive than what the attorneys in town want to charge. What I would like to know is are they legal? Do I just need to get them notarized and witnessed when we sign them to make them valid? Are these type of documents still valid if you move to another state?
Re: ”Documents purchased online, Legal or not”
”Durable” POA is not the same as a Healthcare Surrogate, which is KY’s
terminology for a medical POA. “Durable” means it is still valid if grantor (mom)
became mentally incapacitated. It shouldn’t be that expensive to find local
counsel and do it right.
