Full Answer

You or your attorney can object to the demands of the subpoena by sending the objection in writing to the counsel or other party that issued the subpoena. With a proper objection, a court order must be granted to ensure you comply with the subpoena.

With the help of your attorney, the subpoena can be squashed or modified in court under several circumstances, including that the subpoena requires you to travel more than 100 miles from your residence or fails to allow reasonable time for compliance.

    What is a durable power of attorney?

    A:

    A durable power of attorney (POA) is a legal instrument that designates another responsible party to act on the behalf of the person executing the document, if they become incapacitated by illness or age, according to Nolo. Contrary to ordinary POAs, durable POAs remain in effect after a person becomes incapacitated. These can take effect immediately upon being executed, or only go into effect after mental incapacity has occurred. Additionally, once executed, POAs can be revoked at any time, provided the person is still legally competent, explains AgingCare.
