A: I'm assuming that by "pic" you mean POA. Also, I'm not sure whose usufructuary power you're referring to: her late husband's? This question is one that is better answered by an attorney after review of the power of attorney you're referring to. Feel free to give me a call if you wish to arrange for a review of the document.
