When performing these duties and obligations they will have the document with them to show others they have the legal authority to do so.

Power of attorney forms are extremely powerful documents. They may be used for the simplest of actions or used to take almost complete control over someone’s life. Usually power of attorney forms will take effect immediately. However, sometimes the Grantor may choose to have the power of attorney form take effect only after they become incapacitated. This document is called a “springing power of attorney"
Durable power of attorney forms take effect immediately and continue to stay in effect even if the Grantor becomes incapable of making decisions for themselves. Typically a durable medical power of attorney form would fall under this category. This type of form will let The Attorney in Fact make medical decisions for the Grantor.
To become valid you will need to have print your forms and get them witnessed and notarized. The easiest place to get any document notarized is at your local bank. If you are a customer there it is usually free or very low cost.
Our free power of attorney forms to print may be revoked by the Grantor at any time by using a revoking power of attorney form unless it has been made irrevocable. All power of attorney forms become void on the death of the Grantor. Some states may have further requirements to file your power of attorney form with the county clerks office. Especially if the person you choose as the attorney-in-fact will be conducting any type of real estate transaction on behalf of the Grantor.
You should give serious thought before you let someone act on your behalf. Whomever you are appointing should be someone who is competent and someone you trust. Remember, they may have control over your finances and health decisions.
