Durable Power of Attorney

Posted: Updated:

A Durable Power of Attorney is an inexpensive means to provide an individual with the authority to act on behalf of an incapacitated person (principal) when they can no longer act on their own behalf.  Without the existence of a Durable Power of Attorney, the incapacitated person's family may be required to bring a court action for guardianship, which comes at significant expense.  The existence of a General Power of Attorney provides no assistance, because a General Power of Attorney becomes ineffective when the principal can no longer act on his or her own.  To save thousands of dollars in subsequent court costs, it may be advisable to review an individual's estate-planning materials to determine whether there is a valid Durable Power of Attorney in effect.  If not, having a reputable attorney's office draft a Durable Power of Attorney may constitute a small expense that entails money well spent.
