After years of trying to get mom to appoint me as alternate on her POA, in case my brother were to die and she would have no one to help, I realize they misspelled my last name! I have only had this last name 30 years! And they did this with an attorney. I don't even want to mention it, it has been like pushing a rope up hill. But will this cause me trouble if i should have to use the POA?
