Selecting a person to take over financial or medical decisions in the event of an emergency or medical incapacitation is an enormous step during estate planning. However, family members fall out of favor, close friends become distant and decisions that once made sense might no longer be relevant. In such situations, Florida residents may need to revoke their current powers of attorney in order to establish new ones.
Some powers of attorney include termination dates, but this is not always the case. Many POAs are durable, meant to last and be ready in the event that an emergency or other situation arises. For financial and health care powers of attorney, most people pursue the durable option to ensure that someone will be able to make important decisions in the event of their own incapacitation.
