Power of Attorney

A Power of Attorney is a document executed by a person (principal) that authorizes another (agent) to act on his behalf. It allows a trusted person to step into his shoes and handle his affairs in his absence or when he is otherwise unable to do so because of an illness or later incapacity.

Health care and financial matters are routinely addressed in many Powers of Attorney, and depending on the need, the powers can be very broad or narrow, such as authority to act in just one particular transaction.

Having a Power of Attorney in place before a person becomes incapacitated can avoid the complication and expense of obtaining a guardianship.
