A power of attorney is a document that can be a powerful estate planning tool. A power of attorney can allow a person of your choosing to direct your affairs should you become incapacitated. The Power of Attorney gives legal authority to another person (called an Agent or Attorney-in-Fact) to make property, financial and other legal decisions for the person who signed the power of attorney.
A Power of Attorney can grant broad legal authority, or very limited authority. The Power of Attorney is frequently used to help in the event of a person's illness or disability or in legal transactions where the person cannot be present to sign necessary legal documents.
