Powers of Attorney
An instrument granting someone authority to act as agent or attorney-in-fact for the grantor.
General Power of Attorney
A power of attorney that authorizes an agent to transact all business for the grantor.
Limited Power of Attorney
A power of attorney for a limited or specific purpose allowing an agent on limited powers to transact on behalf of the grantor. Limited Powers of Attorney are usually temporary.
Advance Healthcare Directive
Advance Healthcare Directives were formally known as Living Wills. Advance Directives are legal documents that allow you to give instruction/direction for your medical care if you become incapacitated and cannot communicate your wishes. You have the right to accept or refuse medical care and can be very specific on the types of medical procedures you do or do not want. You may also name another individual as an agent to make health-care decisions for you.
Durable Power of Attorney
A power of attorney that remains in effect during the grantor’s incompetency. This type of power of attorney generally includes healthcare decisions for a patient who has become incompetent. We usually recommend a durable power of attorney including both healthcare and financial and property provisions.
