Power of Attorney in Poughkeepsie, NY
What is Power of Attorney?
In the event that you are injured or incapacitated, a power of attorney (POA) allows someone else to manage the affairs of your life. POA is a document that gives someone, whether it’s a family member, friend, or lawyer, to act on the incapacitated person’s behalf.
A power of attorney can be temporary for an expected absence or illness, or permanent if the person reaches an age when he/she cannot manage his/her own affairs. On the other hand, many people draft a power of attorney in preparation for the worst, even though it is not expected.
