Well in Washington we only had to have the paper work drawn up with a legal assistant and signed and witnessed by a Notory. We did ours at our Credit Union which is a free service through our membership.

This varies by state.

I was advised by an attorney that a POA must be on record with the county recorder in Ohio to transact major transactions such as selling a car or a house. Registering it with the county recorder in some cases makes it accessible online which is handy for verification.

Hello neighbor! I'm a little confused....did you give your POA to your son so that he can take care of you? Or do you have POA for someone else and gave it to son for filing? Either way, in our state you don't even necessarily have to have a POA notorized, but we did for the mil and my own mother. With my mother, she signed it, witnesses signed it and then it was notorized and we were done. Since we were having a lot of other paperwork done for my mil, we had a POA drawn up by our attorney, she signed it and then it was notorized by the attorney since he is a notary. Original is in the safe and I carry a copy. It does not have to be filed in the court system. The only time it might have to be presented in a legal sense is if there are family members who think the POA is abusing the finances or welfare of the person and want to have the court sort it out....then the POA would be able to show proof that they had permission to act for the loved one.
