POWER OF ATTORNEYS
|What is a Power of
A Power of Attorney is a legal
document delegating authority from one person to another. In
the document, the maker of the Power of Attorney grants the
right to act on the maker's behalf. What authority is
granted depends on the specific language of the Power of
Attorney. A person giving a Power of Attorney may make it
very broad or may limit it to certain specific acts.
What are some uses of a
Power of Attorney?
A Power of Attorney may be
used to give another the right to sell a car, home or other
property. A Power of Attorney might be used to allow another
to sign a contract, make health care decisions, handle
financial transactions, or sign legal documents for the
maker of the Power of Attorney. A Power of Attorney may give
others the right to do almost any legal act that the maker
of the Power of Attorney could do.
Where may a person
obtain a Power of Attorney?
A power of attorney is an
important and powerful legal document. It should be drawn by
a lawyer to meet the person's specific circumstances.
Pre-printed forms are often a disaster and may fail to
provide the protection desired.
