Q. florida law is it legal to coherse someone encompacitated to sign a document changing their will and get poa at same tim
A: If it can be shown that a Will or a Power of Attorney was signed by coercion or by a person not mentally competent, it should be disregarded. This decision is by a court and you have to raise this in that forum. Find a lawyer that practices estate planning for further guidance.
Q. Is there a limit as to how long a restraining order can last?
A: The term of a "restraining order" (also known as an Order for Protection Against Violence) is set by the issuing judge. This can be extended or shortened by the court. Typically, any modification of the term of the order is done with notice to the victim/petitioner.
Q. Shoptlifting at Target in Florida
