This easy to use interactive form will produce a sample Durable Power of Attorney form.
A Durable Power of Attorney (POA) is a legal way to have one person act on behalf of another if you should become incapacitated. A Durable POA remains, or becomes effective, if you become incompetent. Incompetent means that you are unable to manage your affairs.
A Durable POA must contain exact language stating that your intent is for the agent you select to act on your behalf if you become incapacitated. Without that language it will not be valid if you do become incapacitated.
Any type pf Power of Attorney document gives someone authority to act on your behalf on matters that you list in the document. The power can be specific to a certain task or can cover many duties including financial and medical. The power can start immediately or only after some event occurs such as the principal becoming mentally incompetent. A power of attorney does not take away your right to act on your behalf.
The Durable Power of Attorney is a very powerful document. Note that these forms and instructions are provided only as samples. Speak to your local Judge Advocate General's Corps office for more specific information.
