Durable Powers of Attorney
A Durable Power of Attorney is a legal document that authorizes an individual (your Agent) to act on your behalf for financial and legal matters should you become incapacitated. Incapacity can occur at any time for various reasons such as a car accident, illness, or other unexpected circumstances. Without a Durable Power of Attorney someone would have to obtain Court supervised guardianship over you which is time-consuming and costly and takes the control of who is caring for you out of your hands.
