Powers of Attorney-Don’t wait too long!

On Behalf of | Oct 3, 2010 | Uncategorized

    Powers of Attorney for Health Care and Powers of Attorney for Property are very powerful documents that can be used to avoid the need for Guardianship.  They must be signed while the person giving the power is still competent and understands the significance of what they are going in granting the power to an agent. Powers of attorney should only be granted to persons whom you trust and who are able and willing to carry out your wishes. Powers of attorney should almost never be granted to strangers or to people with competing business or personal interests or agendas. So, when should you get a power of attorney? The answer is now! You don’t wait until you are having problems. Sometimes that is too late. Only wait if you know when you are going to have a stroke, heart attack or get a brain injury in an accident.
