Power of Attorney Documents
Power of Attorney:
Before you name someone as your agent, you should talk to that person about it and get their consent. The person you choose as your agent should know that they have a duty of trust and must always act in your best interests.
You can also name another agent to act for you if your first choice cannot.
You can also choose how long a power of attorney will last, unless otherwise limited by the law. For example, you can make it as short as a few weeks while you are out of the country. You can also make it take effect only after a certain event occurs, such as your disability.
