Principled Powers of Attorney Lawyer Serving Fayetteville Families
Powers of attorney are legal documents that allow a person or people of your choosing to make important decisions on your behalf in the event you cannot do so yourself. Knowing someone you trust and who has your best interests in mind will be called in the event of an emergency gives you the peace of mind you need to face the future fearlessly.
What Can Powers of Attorney Do?
Powers of attorney agreements are inherently flexible. You can be as vague or specific as you want in outlining which circumstances invoke powers of attorney. For example, some people give their spouses full control over financial and medical decisions, whereas others name a business partner who may only make decisions in the event of dementia or death.
Basic vs. Durable Powers of Attorney
A simple power of attorney can only be invoked when you pass away. Conversely, a durable power of attorney goes into effect if you are deemed mentally incapacitated yet still living. For this reason, most people choose to establish durable powers of attorney unless the appointee is only named for the purpose of executing a will.
