Question: Does a notorized statement overide a power of attorney

Answer:

You may want to consult an attorney for guidance on your specific circumstances. It is not clear what statement has been notorized. The following is provided as general information only:

You may want to review the laws in Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.) Title 14, Chapter 5, Article 5 for powers of attorney for protection of persons under disability and their property. A.R.S. § 14-5501 discusses the requirements to create a durable power of attorney. A power of attorney is a document that allows a person to appoint a person or organization to handle his or her affairs while he or she is unavailable or unable to do so. (A.R.S. § 14-5501(A)). The signature on a power of attorney must be notarized. (A.R.S. § 14-5501(D)(4)).

You can find life care planning forms and instructions on the Arizona Attorney General's webpage. The forms available include a durable health care power of attorney and a durable mental health power of attorney.
