General Power Of Attorney

A General Power of Attorney Form designates a person to handle the business, financial and legal affairs of another person, either for a specific function or for overall day-to-day needs. For example, a Power of Attorney may be used where one person is unable to personally attend to a specific legal affair or piece of business, and wishes to have a designated representative handle the matter on his or her behalf. In a more tragic example, a Power of Attorney may be used in situations where a person’s mental or physical capacities leave him or her unable to make decisions. Key provisions this form includes:

  • Principal’s and Agent’s name and address: Identifies the Principal and the Agent
