Power of Attorney
In certain personal circumstances, it could become apparent that you are unable to make decisions about certain personal matters on your own. In this case, you would need to appoint someone to make these decisions for you, which comes in the form of a legally binding document called a power of attorney. This document allows a person of your choosing the ability to make certain decisions, the conditions of which are agreed in advance, on your behalf. Here we will discuss a little more about the process of appointing a power of attorney and what exactly that means for you.
Types of Power Delegation
When preparing a power of attorney, it is very important that you understand the different types there are and what powers you are actually signing over to another person. There are four different types of power of attorney being general, limited, durable, and springing. Each of these means a different thing and it is very important that these are understood before you commit to one. A general power of attorney allows a person all the powers and functions that you as an individual have. A limited power of attorney allows a person restricted powers being only those that are outlined in the document. The durable power of attorney allows a person to act on behalf of an individual, which remains in place even after the individual has become incapacitated. A springing power of attorney is one that is arranged while a person is still well and able, but springs into effect as soon as they become incapacitated.
As we have outlined the different types of power of attorney options, it is crucial that terms and definitions are clearly defined within the documents. This will prevent any potential legal issues in the future and your loved ones not getting the assistance they need when they need it the most. Our team at Vegas Mobile Notary Public has a range of templates already drawn up, ready to customize to suit your individual circumstances.
Once the documents have been created, all detail has been clearly outlined and all parties are happy with the powers being delegated, it is time to make to document official. A notary is required to confirm that everything has been done legally, with no party being forced into signing a legal document that they have not agreed to, or have been unable to agree to due to incapacitation.
