Is a Power of Attorney in one state good in another state?

04/25/2007 - Power of Attorney - State: FL #3304

Full Question:

I have a power of attorney in Florida. When my friend moves to New York and needs another person to have power of attorney for business in New York- is my power of attorney in Florida invalid? I am also her executive and trustee of her revocable living trust and have helped her with finances for 5 years. A relative has sent New York durable power of attorney forms to my friend so that she can help her in New York.


If the Florida power of attorney doesn't specify a duration, it isn't revoked merely by the principal's relocation. It should be revoked if it is no longer to be valid.
