With the POA am I able to file on g is behalf and pay his child support and other financial responsibility?
A) Yes, as your fiancé’s financial power of attorney, you will be able to file for unemployment benefits on his behalf and pay his child support and other financial responsibilities.
A power of attorney is a legal document that gives you the authority to act on behalf of another person. This authority can be limited to specific tasks, such as filing for unemployment benefits, or it can be broad, giving you the power to manage the person’s finances and make decisions about their healthcare.
In your case, your fiance has given you the authority to manage his finances and make decisions about his child support. This means that you will be able to file for unemployment benefits on his behalf and pay his child support. You will also be able to make other financial decisions on his behalf, such as opening and closing bank accounts, paying bills, and investing his money.
It is important to note that your authority as a power of attorney is limited. You cannot make decisions that would harm your fiance or his interests. You also cannot make decisions that are outside the scope of the authority that he has given you.
If you have any questions about your authority as a power of attorney, you should consult with an attorney.
Your fiance would not be qualified for unemployment benefits as he would not meet unemployment eligibility requirements.
