Durable Power of Attorney

1 Answers. Asked on Aug 13th, 2013 on Family Law - Washington
More details to this question:
My parents have me as the agent in their Durable Power of Attorney. It becomes effective with their Doctors written statement that they are unable to effectively manage their affairs. We are at that time. My question is after I receive the Doctors written statement, what do I do next? Do I have to file something? Will acting as their agent mean I have to send copies of the Power of Attorney and Doctors statement to whom ever I need to do business with? Just wondering how to proceed with the next step.

First of all let me state that this answer in no way establishes a lawyer/client relationship.  If a lawyer drew up the Durable Power of Attorney, I advise seeking his (her) counsel immediately.  If you have no attorney, I would suggest one that deals with Probate, Estate Planning and Elder Law.  I practice both medicine and law in S.C.
