Durable General Power of Attorney
Our estate planning attorneys prepare a durable general power of attorney when planning for your estate. This document allows you to specify a primary and alternate attorney-in-fact who will transact business on your behalf in the event you become incapacitated. In the event of a health crisis, this preventative measure greatly reduces stress on your family. However, this document, alone is insufficient to manage your affairs because it terminates at your death. Your will then becomes effective and helps expedite the probate process.
Uses beyond estate planning
Oftentimes, in the case of a disabled or mentally ill persons, it is necessary for them to elect a power of attorney to transact business on their behalf. Please contact our law office so we may help you make informed and proper decisions on these difficult and legally significant matters.
