Durable Powers of Attorney–
In many situations, Powers of Attorney are a helpful tool in your estate plan. In the event of your incapacity or inability to make decisions for yourself, a trusted person can be designated to assist you in making these decisions without court interference. A Power of Attorney is a written authorization to represent or act on another’s behalf in private affairs, business, or some other legal matter. Having a Power of Attorney is a relatively low cost and private way to decide which family member or trusted friend will have the legal authority to carry out your wishes if you can no longer speak or act for yourself.
Many people have a hard time admitting that they are unable to take care of themselves or make decisions. Having a Power of Attorney isn’t something to be ashamed of. It will give you the security of knowing that when the time comes, the proper decisions will be made. Having an Attorney file your Power of Attorney is important.
