Power of Attorney

Power of Attorney Lawyer in Fort Myers, FL

A power of attorney (POA) is a legal document that allows you to designate a trusted individual to make decisions on your behalf in the event that you become incapacitated.

Below are common types of power of attorney:

  • General Power of Attorney: Provides broad authority to an agent to make legal and financial decisions on behalf of the principal.

  • Durable Power of Attorney: Remains effective even if the principal becomes incapacitated, making it valuable for long-term planning.

  • Limited (Special) Power of Attorney: Grants limited or specific powers to the agent for particular tasks or a set period.

  • Springing Power of Attorney: Becomes effective only upon a specific event or condition, often the incapacity of the principal.

  • Financial Power of Attorney: Focuses on financial and property-related decisions.

  • Healthcare Power of Attorney: Authorizes an agent to make medical decisions for the principal if they are unable to do so.

These are some common types, but powers of attorney can be tailored to specific needs and situations. It's important to consult with a professional POA attorney in Fort Myers at The Law Office of Kelly L. Fayer, P.A. to create the appropriate type for your circumstances.

Are Powers of Attorney Required?

A power of attorney is not required in Florida, but it is a good idea to have one if you are incapacitated. If you do not have a power of attorney, a court will appoint an individual to make decisions on your behalf. This individual will not have the same knowledge or experience as the person you would choose to act on your behalf.
