Power of Attorney
Power of attorneys are an often overlooked part of estate planning. A power of attorney is a legal document where you name an agent, called an attorney in fact, to act on your behalf if you are unable to act for yourself. It is clearly important for the elderly to have a durable power of attorney, but it is also very important for everyone else to have a power of attorney in case of disability. We often find that parents need to have a power of attorney for their over-18-year-old children that go off to college but want their parents to take care of their banking and other financial matters at home. Often, parents find that they are unable to access their adult child’s information unless the child has given the parent legal power of attorney.
