The Estate Planning attorneys with the Law offices of Nay & Friedenberg explain the power of attorney document.
A power of attorney is a document by which one person appoints another person to serve as his or her agent. A power of attorney gives the agent the authority to act in the place of the principal for the purposes stated in the document.
With an effective power of attorney, a family can avoid having to go to court to have someone appointed as “conservator” over the person’s financial affairs.
