Understanding Powers Of Attorney

A power of attorney sets forth who can make decisions on your behalf and to what extent. Simply put, you are picking someone to help. You are not turning over your rights and ability to do something; rather just adding to the list of those who can help.

Types of powers of attorney include:

  • Durable
  • General
  • Limited

Powers of attorney are essential because they provide a backup plan. In the case of spouses, if one dies or becomes incapacitated, the other spouse likely has the legal authority to make decisions. If both spouses become unable to do this, a power of attorney would give that authority to another person such as a sibling or adult child.

Related documents, such as the living will or health care surrogate, allow you to specify who can make health care decisions for you and what actions to take. Our firm can guide you through this process as well as advise you regarding any number of other options such as wills and trusts, probate administration, Medicaid planning, guardianships and much more.
