Can a Judge Revoke a Power of Attorney?

Once a person is no longer competent, he or she cannot revoke a power of attorney. However, if the principal’s family members believe that the agent is acting improperly, then they can file a petition in court to challenge the agent. If the court finds the agent is not acting in the principal’s best interest, the court can revoke the power of attorney and appoint a guardian.
