Drafting Powers of Attorney in Rancho Cucamonga
Keep Your Financial Affairs in Order with a Power of Attorney
To allow a person you trust to have control over your financial affairs, it is important to create a notarized power of attorney. This document gives a person you trust the right to take charge of your finances only if you become unable to do so, whether due to a medical emergency, a military deployment, or other incapacitation such as a mental disability.
Types of Powers of Attorney
Our Rancho Cucamonga estate planning lawyer helps clients with the following types of powers of attorney:
- Durable: This power of attorney allows someone to act in the place of another person for all financial decisions
- Limited: This form of power of attorney is put in place for a single, specific duty. After this task is accomplished, the power of attorney is no longer valid
- General: A general power of attorney allows an agent to act on your behalf in financial affairs if you were to become unable to do so
An agent named in a power of attorney is able to complete financial transactions including buying and selling real estate, handling taxes, completing bank transactions, and more. These different types of powers of attorney allow you to grant specific levels of control to your agent.
To learn more about what an agent's role would be, don't hesitate to contact our firm today. Our Rancho Cucamonga power of attorney lawyer is ready to serve you.
Requirements for a Power of Attorney in California
In the state of California, a POA can only be created by a principal who:
- Is at least 18 years old
- Has legal capacity to enter a contract
Most POAs require signatures from two witnesses to the principal's signature, or a legal notary. Any witnesses cannot also be the POA's agent or employees of your healthcare provider.
California's Probate Code offers official forms for both financial and healthcare powers of attorney. However, it is highly recommended to obtain a personalized and thorough document from a power of attorney lawyer.
