Using Power of Attorney Forms

By completing a Power of Attorney form, you can place someone in charge of your interests at a time in which you cannot make your own decisions. An example of when Power of Attorney can become useful is if you are incapacitated by illness and unable to decide what to do with your assets.

A Power of Attorney can be “Durable” or “Nondurable.” A nondurable Power of Attorney is set for a specific amount of time. For example, you can give someone authority to complete a business deal. On the other hand, a durable power of attorney is in place until it's revoked.

At you can create your Power of Attorney quickly and easily. By answering a few simple questions, your Power of Attorney will be customized automatically to be durable or nondurable as you wish.
