Power of Attorney DocumentsThis article is being written to conclude and recap our series on challenging a Power of Attorney in Hartford and other Connecticut areas. This was an important topic to address as the decision to challenge a POA must often be made quickly and individuals typically do not know how to proceed. Failing to take immediate action, however, can lead to lasting consequences. We have written this series, therefore, with the goal of providing information which will help people to better understand their situation. Our goal has also been for this information to be useful in the selection of an attorney. If you or a family member are in need of assistance then contact our office today to speak with a probate lawyer.

We have addressed several important topics over our recent articles. Issues which we addressed include:

There are several reasons why we chose to address these particular topics. First, one cannot bring a challenge simply because they disagree with decisions which are being made. They must have a legal basis for doing so. Understanding the grounds for a challenge is, therefore, critical. Second, if immediate action is not taken then it may be difficult to reverse damage that has been done. Such damage can include the transfer of property, decisions regarding healthcare, and more. Third, understanding the process of filing a Petition is important to making sure that there are not unnecessary delays in the case. Finally, knowing what to expect from the process, and what potential remedies are available, is important to making the decision as to whether or not to move forward.

An important point we made in each of these articles is the importance of contacting an attorney as soon as possible if you need assistance. These types of challenges involve complicated issues of fact and law. Having an attorney who is experienced in such matters can potentially make a difference as to the outcome of a case.
