A Power of Attorney is an essential part of estate planning as it allows you to appoint someone to manage your affairs. This can be a delicate subject for many people. It’s difficult to think about being unable to make financial and other decisions for yourself, yet it’s necessary to do so.
A Power of Attorney is a flexible document, and your estate planning attorney can help you craft one that suits your circumstances. You’ll have many decisions to make in addition to choosing whom you wish to appoint as your attorney-in-fact. Chief among these decisions are when your Power of Attorney will take effect and what specific powers your agent will have. You can make any number of stipulations and may even decide to appoint more than one person who can act on your behalf. For example, a Power of Attorney may be unlimited in scope, or it may be limited to certain actions only and to certain periods of time. Also a Power of Attorney could be effective immediately or it could only take effect when you are unable to handle your own affairs. Drafting an effective Power of Attorney not only requires knowledge but also requires experience.
