Different Powers of Attorney

We handle many different types of powers of attorney, including:

General Power of Attorney

Agents granted general power of attorney has broad powers to act on your behalf, including hiring professional help, making gifts, operating relevant business interests, settling claims, purchasing life insurance, and handling both business and financial transactions. Granting this power is frequently a part of estate planning in order to prepare for the event that someone is in place to handle relevant financial matters in cases where you are no longer mentally or physically capable of managing your affairs.

Special Power of Attorney

When granting an agent special power of attorney, you can limit and specify the powers they have in the document. This type of power is typically granted when you have certain health reasons or other commitments that mean you are not able to handle certain affairs. Common matters often covered in these types of documents include selling property, managing real estate, collecting debts, and handling business transactions.

Health Care Power of Attorney

You can grant an agent the authority to make medical decisions for you in case you cannot make those decisions on your own by granting them health care power of attorney.

Durable Power of Attorney

In order to create a safeguard against issues that may come up if you become mentally incompetent due to injury, illness, or accident, you can sign a durable power of attorney in order to ensure that the document you signed remains valid. This type of power can be general, special, or health care power of attorney, and has a durability provision that will ensure the current power of attorney remains in effect.

This type of power of attorney can also be used when you want to prepare for the possibility that an injury, illness, or accident renders you mentally incompetent. When crafting the document, you can specify that the durable power of attorney only takes effect when a doctor certifies that you are in fact mentally incompetent, and you can also name a specific doctor or doctors who have the power to determine your mental competence.
