Power of Attorney

Power of Attorney is a legal document that gives someone else the authority to act on your behalf in making decisions or taking action in legal or financial matters. It is a way of delegating legal authority from one person to another, and it can be as general or specific as you like. It is important to note that Power of Attorney documents must be written and signed in accordance with local laws.

Power of Attorney is necessary when you are unable to make decisions or take action on your own due to illness, injury, or other circumstances. It is also important when you are unable to be present to sign a legal document or take other action, such as selling a property or managing banking accounts. Power of Attorney allows you to delegate authority to someone else to make decisions and take action on your behalf.


There are several different types of Power of Attorney, each with a unique purpose. The most common types are General Power of Attorney, Special Power of Attorney, Limited Power of Attorney, Durable Power of Attorney, Springing Power of Attorney, and Healthcare Power of Attorney. Each type has its own specific rules and regulations, so it is important to understand the differences before signing any document.

General Power of Attorney: This type of Power of Attorney grants broad authority to another person to act on the behalf of the principal. The agent is granted wide-ranging authority to handle a variety of tasks, including financial transactions, legal contracts, and other matters.


Special Power of Attorney: This is a more limited form of Power of Attorney that grants authority to an agent for a specific purpose or task. The agent’s authority is limited to the scope of the task as outlined in the document.


Limited Power of Attorney: This type of Power of Attorney grants authority to an agent for a very specific purpose and for a limited duration of time.


Durable Power of Attorney: This is a type of Power of Attorney that remains in effect even if the principal becomes incapacitated.


Healthcare Power of Attorney: This type of Power of Attorney grants authority to an agent to make decisions about the principal’s medical care in the event that the principal is unable to make those decisions for themselves.
