POWER OF ATTORNEY
A Power of Attorney authorizes an individual to act on your behalf in a legal or business matter or to handle your financial affairs when you consent. A Power of Attorney may be for a limited purpose or be durable and take effect when you become incapacitated and you are unable to manage your own financial affairs.
A Power of Attorney is a very powerful document which allows someone to step into your shoes for all legal and financial matters. Without it, your family may be left to find more expensive legal proceedings to manage your financial affairs when you are incapacitated.
