A Power of Attorney document allows one person to designate another to handle the business, financial and legal affairs of the person signing the form. A Power of Attorney document can be created for a specific function with a limited time period, or for more general authority to handle a number of day-to-day needs.
WHAT YOU RECEIVE WITH STANDARD LEGAL'S POWER OF ATTORNEY DOCUMENT PREPARATION SERVICE:
Allow the DIY Legal document preparation specialists to create a Power of Attorney for you – one that is effective and legally binding. A Power of Attorney document allows one person to designate another person to handle the business, financial and legal affairs of the person signing the form, either for a specific function or for overall day-to-day needs.
THESE POWER OF ATTORNEY FORMS ARE VERY POWERFUL LEGAL DOCUMENTS! The person(s) named as "attorney-in-fact" will have the ability -- once these documents are signed, witnessed and notarized and provided to such person(s) -- to conduct the business, transaction or engage in the conduct set forth on the document.
In short, these documents allow the persons named as attorney-in-fact to carry out the business of the person signing this document, the same way as if he or she could do it him or herself.
The persons named as "attorney-in-fact" must be trustworthy and have the best interest of the person signing this document in mind, so the forms created should be used with the utmost care.
With your legal document preparation service purchase, you receive the following completed Power of Attorney documents:
Durable Power of Attorney
A Durable Power of Attorney is a powerful document. While there are many uses for this document, it is most often utilized by individuals who cannot or no longer wish to engage in certain transactions. DIY Legal will customize the Durable Power of Attorney document to allow the person that is appointed as "attorney-in-fact" to conduct or engage in most ANY FORM OR TYPE of business on the part of the person that signs the Power of Attorney form - such as buying, selling or transferring property, signing documents, purchasing assets, opening bank accounts, buying stocks, etc., all in the name of the person signing the document (and with money owned by the person signing the Power of Attorney document).
Limited Power of Attorney
A Limited Power of Attorney is used to permit the appointed "attorney-in-fact" to conduct or engage in specific business or transaction that are listed right on the Power of Attorney document. DIY Legal will customize this Limited Power of Attorney to meet your specific requirements. This document differs from the Durable Power of Attorney in two ways: 1) The authority granted under this document is limited to the tasks, business or transactions specifically stated in the document; 2) The authority granted under this document is limited in time, i.e. if the action or business is not taken or engaged in by the date set forth on the document, the authority to do the same lapses. This customized document is appropriate for those individuals who cannot take certain actions on their own and want to appoint another to take these limited actions for them. Using information that you provide, DIY Legal can tailor this Power of Attorney to the limited circumstances that you need.
Revocation of Power of Attorney
A Revocation of Power of Attorney is used to end a Power of Attorney and restore only you as legally designated to handle your business and financial matters. DIY Legal document preparation professionals will provide you with a form that you can use to terminate the relationship with your appointed "attorney in fact."
