Massachusetts Durable Powers of Attorney
Estate Planning Lawyers Serving Clients Throughout Taunton
With a power of attorney, you are given the option of appointing another person as “attorney-in-fact.” This gives them the power to handle both your financial and non-medical affairs. If you do not have a power of attorney appointed, you will not be allowed to have anyone represent you unless the court officially appoints someone as your conservator or guardian. Not only can this take a great deal of time and money, but the court may not appoint someone you prefer; additionally, your representative may have to seek court permission to take steps that could have otherwise been implemented immediately with a power of attorney.
There are two different kinds of power of attorney available:
- Limited power of attorney gives someone short-term rights. For example, if you need someone who can sign a deed for you while you are out of town, this would be a good option.
- General power of attorney is much more comprehensive, affording the person rights that you personally have.
