Drafting Powers of Attorney in Dallas Fort Worth

An Experienced Southlake Estate Planning Attorney

Powers of attorney are legally binding documents that give someone control over important decisions when an individual cannot make these decisions for themselves. By designating a power of attorney, you can rest easier in the knowledge that a trusted friend or family member will be available to make medical or financial decisions.

You can designate a power of attorney for a limited purpose and set time period or it can be general with no time limit. There are also special powers of attorney is for a limited time and purpose, such as signing the papers needed to transfer property. General powers of attorney, on the other hand, gives an individual responsibility over an extended amount of time. If you become incompetent or incapacitated, a general power of attorney will end.

To give someone power of attorney, you must be an adult with sound judgment capabilities, otherwise, a guardianship may be more appropriate.

How Do Powers of Attorney Work?

    To establish a durable power of attorney for healthcare or finances, you will need to name the person you want to be your agent, dictate how you want the power of attorney to be used, and sign and notarize the document. To protect your future medical care and financial transactions, it is important to set up power of attorney and choose an agent you would trust with these vital decisions.

    In addition, your power of attorney can end for any of the following reasons:

    • It has a designated ending date
    • When you become incapacitated
    • If you revoke it
    • If a guardian of the estate is appointed for you
    • If you pass away
