In reaching its decision that an attorney-in-fact could exercise the principal's right to an elective share, Florida's Fifth District Court of Appeal recognized a distinction between an agent acting under a DFPOA and a court-appointed guardian.
1) The DFPOA "has the beneficial effect of avoiding the time, expense and embarrassment involved in having to establish guardianships for incompetent persons.
Furthermore, the court stated the DFPOA applied to all property of the principal, including homestead property, provided the principal's spouse joined in the alienation of such homestead property.
