Power of Attorney Form

A power of attorney form is used for all kinds of transactions that require one person to authorize another person to act as their agent. These forms are an essential component of estate planning, business operations, personal finance, and healthcare matters.

The kind of power of attorney form needed depends on what duties the agent is responsible for performing. For example, a limited power of attorney is used to provide agent privileges to do a specific task during a specific timeframe, while a durable power of attorney grants sweeping rights.

Two parties are involved with each type of POA. Principal refers to the person writing the document and Attorney-in-Fact refers to the person responsible for carrying out tasks. The attorney-in-fact doesn't have to be a lawyer. In fact, they are usually a spouse, relative, business partner, financial advisor, physician, or friend.
