|Dad is in care home and adult son has a durable POA and a trust in Dad's name to sign. I had previously e-mailed as well as talked to the son's wife about Dad's ID and stressed how important it was that it be valid, government issued, etc. No problem, she says. Good. |
So at the appt., son's got a boatlaod of papers, and he wants to get started, but I say first things first and ask for the ID. Son pulls out his phone and shows me a photograph of a copy. Yikes! I know CO law doesn't expressly forbid me to use a photograph of a copy on a phone but something told me I didn't want to go down that road. Ever. So, now, in addition to saying we gotta see ID, we have to make clear: NOT a copy of ID, not a photograph of ID, and not on a phone. Yikes!
