An agent is someone you chose to act on your behalf. If an agent acts on your behalf and under the scope of his or her authority, then you will more likely than not be bound to his or her decisions. However, your agent has the fiduciary duty to act with the highest degree of good faith on your behalf. If your agent failed to act under the scope of his or her authority or acted against your best interest, then he or she is liable to you and to your successors in interest.
THE PROCEDURE IN YOUR CLAIM AGAINST YOUR AGENT
1. File a petition in court requesting the judge to terminate your agent’s authority, to remove the agent, or to grant an appropriate relief.
2. Show the court that you shared a relationship with your agent where you placed your trust and confidence in him or her; and your agent undertook such trust and assumed a duty to advice, counsel, and/or protect you.
