A Power of Attorney is a document that is signed by the person giving it which allows you to act on their behalf. You cannot have it signed and notarized if they are not competent to do so, and a POA can still be revoked by the person signing it at any time. If you need to take control of a parent's finances, but they are angry at you specifically for some reason, you really have no recourse. You can attempt a conservatorship, but the person has the right to object, and if there is an objection, the court will often appoint someone else. Also, you need to show that there is a reason to seek the conservatorship. The courts are very careful with taking a person's rights away. Also, being a conservator is different than having POA. With a POA, you have the right to conduct business for the person (assuming it's your parent), but you are not held financially liable for their debts. As a conservator, you must have the court decide certain things, and you are liable for all their debts! Be very careful what you sign up for.

You cannot get a PoA unless you have your parent's consent....is that what you mean by "angry?"
