Durable Power of Attorneys

A Naples Estate Planning Lawyer Can Help

A power of attorney is a written and signed legal document that allows someone else to act in your place for a variety of circumstances and transactions. A durable power of attorney is such a contract that persists even after you become incapacitated or unable to make your own decisions.

An effective way to ensure that your plans continue as intended, even after you become ill or are in an accident, a durable power of attorney should be created with the help of an experienced estate planning attorney to avoid any possible mistakes. A professional estate planning lawyer from the Law Office of Conrad Willkomm, P.A. can assist you with all the minor details and big decisions.

What does a durable power of attorney allow?

The person – called an agent – of your choosing will be able to act upon your behalf once a durable power of attorney is officially created. Your agent is responsible for handling many of your personal and financial responsibilities, so it is important that you grant the power to someone you can trust.

Decisions your agent will be responsible for include:

  • Business transactions and management
  • Tax-related matters
  • Family matters and guardianship issues
  • Medical decisions for your own care

A durable power of attorney is beneficial because it can serve as a permanent arrangement. There are, however, certain scenarios that may bring it to an end.

  • Death: Should you pass away, durable power of attorney expires. If you wanted your agent to maintain control after your passing, they would have to be named your executor in your will.
  • Revocation: If you are no longer incapacitated, you will be able to decide if you want your chosen agent to keep power of attorney or not.
  • Agent unavailable: If your agent is unavailable, your durable power of attorney cannot be exercised as you intended. Alternate agents may be named in the original article to help avoid such a problem.
