My father gave me a durable power of attorney years ago signed and notarized, but no lawyer was involved. Is this document valid?

Child54, it depends on State laws. It may or may not be up-to-date according to State laws.

My parents had POA's and Wills there were older then dirt. Being my folks were in their 90's and kept stalling, I had to use a therapeutic fib to get them in to see an Elder Law Attorney.... told my folks that the way their Wills were written that the State would get half. That got Dad's attention big time.

So it is better to play it safe.

Dear Child54,

I would check with an elder law attorney. I do believe it needs to be witnessed and possibly registered with an attorney.
