Power of Attorney is one of the most common documents notarized by our notaries.
A power of attorney (POA) is a document that allows you to appoint a person or organization to manage your affairs if you become unable to do so.
There are few different POA’s – each type gives your attorney-in-fact (the person who will be making decisions on your behalf) a different level of control.
It’s important to know that ordinary, or “nondurable,” POA automatically end if the person who makes them loses mental capacity. In case you ever become mentally incapacitated, you’ll need what are known as “durable” powers of attorney for medical care and finances. A durable power of attorney simply means that the document stays in effect if you become incapacitated and unable to handle matters on your own.
