    Guardian/POA

    What is the name of your state? New Jersey

    Two years ago my brother appointed himself & his wife POA for out mother. He died one month ago. I am in the process of obtaining Guardianship.

    Does Guardianship trump POA?

    No one can appoint themselves to be a POA. How did they do this?

    Yes, guardianship trumps POA. However, the guardian is not automatically able to make health care decisions. The court order has to include the guardian being the Health Care Surrogate/Proxy.
