QUESTION: Dear Legal Wiz,
I am over here in the US, but I need to apply for a TRN to do some business back in Jamaica. The only person I can rely on is my doctor. I want to know if I can get him to sign for me or not on the application papers.
RESPONSE: Dear Mitzie,
Nobody can represent you in signing on your behalf unless they have been given a power of attorney instrument. In your case however, you are better off applying for the TRN online and then relying on the doctor to submit the form for you, once you send it to him. After the card is ready, you can ask that person to collect it for you.
When the application is submitted, a number will be processed for you.
The above does not constitute legal advice. Inhouse senior journalists research and discuss with specialists eg attorneys-at-law, as necessary before posting responses. In conclusion, names are changed at times by request.
