What is the name of your state? Florida
my concern is this: My aunt took my grandmother to have her will and power of attorney done. My mother was going to be the power of attorney. when my grandmother got home she had 2 power of attorneys one for my mother and one for my aunt. They are completely alike. filed one the same day at the same time. Is this legal , they don't state that one is POA then the other or they both are nothing like that. if this is legal how does it work. if it is not legal can the attorney that filed them be held responsable?

Unless the POA itself states that they are both co power of attorneys, there is going to be a big battle when it comes time to settle this estate. Have the attorney advise your mother that she needs to name only one person in charge and void one of the POA's.
