Overview of Updated Florida Power of Attorney Laws

The Florida Statute (Chapter 709) that addresses powers of attorney was revised substantially by the Florida Legislature's passage of Senate Bill 670 on May 4, 2011. The new statute became effective on October 1, 2011. While the new law does not make a power of attorney properly executed prior to the effective date void, the new statute nevertheless applies to those powers of attorney that were executed prior to the effective date.
