I found this for you, but want to remind everyone there is a difference in POA's. If you have a durable POA and it fits this criteria you should be okay. If it is just a POA, then it becomes void when your mother becomes incompetent. In that case, you will probably have to ask for guardianship. Hope this helps.
What happens if the Power of Attorney was created under the laws of another state?
If the Power of Attorney was properly executed under the other state’s laws, then it may be used in Florida, but its use will be subject to Florida’s Power of Attorney Act and other state laws. The agent may act only as authorized by Florida law and the terms of the Power of Attorney. There are additional requirements for real estate transactions in Florida, and if the Power of Attorney does not comply with those requirements its use may be limited to banking and other non-real estate transactions. The third person may also request an opinion of counsel that the Power of Attorney was properly executed in accordance with the laws of the other state.
