I am not a Wisc attorney so I am not familiar with their statutes. Generally speaking, you can keep your maiden name on all documents or change your license. Its really a preference thing. Some people prefer the names on all their licenses and degrees to match.
Having a POA does not stop the State from removing someone if they believe they are in danger. As I suggested before, you should immediately contact an elder law attorney who does guardianships as well.

ER diagnosed me with an umbilical hernia. I was put on modified duty (not given hours to this day). The single medication I was RXd... Read more »
Since this is a denied case, I would contact an attorney and relay all information and then see if you have a viable case.
