A power of attorney document is written to build an association between a specified agent, a proprietor, and a person who is given authority, which is often an attorney-in-fact. This document permits the proprietor to give control over certain financial and legal responsibilities, when they are incapacitated medically or mentally.
This document must be presented in writing, signed by an individual 18 years of age or older, it must name an attorney-in-fact, and must specify when this person is granted authority. The document must be notarized and signed by witnesses.
