Durable Power Of Attorney 

A Power Of Attorney authorizes someone else to handle matters on behalf of someone else. The Durable Power of Attorney is one of the most critical documents in a situation where an individual cannot care for themselves. The Durable Power of Attorney stays in effect when an individual becomes mentally incapacitated. It's important to note that the person making the Durable Power of Attorney can make the document very specific or broad.


Power of attorney can authorize another individual to handle healthcare, personal finances, sell a house or car on behalf of another individual. This person can even sign other legal documents if given the go-ahead from the original individual. The main difference between a regular Power of Attorney and a Durable Power of Attorney is that a standard copy terminates as soon as the individual becomes mentally incapacitated, let's say, for example, Alzheimer's disease.​ It's important to note that all parties must be mentally competent before this process begins during the signing of the documents. 

Durable Power of Attorney can't be done alone.
