Essential Estate Planning Advice
A power of attorney allows a person to appoint another person as "attorney-in-fact" to handle your financial and other non-medical affairs. Without a durable power of attorney, no one can represent you unless a court appoints a conservator and that can cost lots of money and time. Further, the judge may not choose the person you would prefer. Also, under a conservatorship, your representative may have to seek court permission to take planning steps that she could implement immediately under a simple durable power of attorney. A power of attorney may be limited or general. A limited power of attorney may give someone the right to sign a deed to property on a day when you are out of town, or it may allow someone to sign checks for you. A general power is comprehensive and gives your attorney-in-fact all the powers and rights that you have yourself. It is also critically important for the power of attorney to be "durable", in other words to allow it to be used even if you become incompetent, incapacitated, or disabled. Our estate planning lawyers have decades of estate planning experience. We understand that drafting a durable power of attorney (DPOA) or other estate plan document is not as simple as filling out a form or arranging for witnesses to sign.
