What is a Power of Attorney?
A power of attorney is a written authorization that gives someone the authority to make decisions on behalf of a loved one that has the incapacity to do so, or simply wishes to delegate the authority for other reasons.
With a Power of Attorney, your loved one (the principal) is giving someone (the agent) the authority to act in certain situations on their behalf when they no longer have the capacity or desire to do so.
There are several forms of Power of Attorney in Texas, some of which are: Medical Power of Attorney, General Power of Attorney, Limited or Special Power of Attorney, and Durable Power of Attorney.
Medical Power of Attorney
There may come a time when a person needs a loved one to make medical decisions on their behalf. Having a medical power of attorney allows your loved ones to make these decisions on your behalf.
General Power of Attorney
A General Power of Attorney grants someone very broad rights to act on your behalf, including carrying out financial and personal matters.
Limited Special Power of Attorney
A Limited or Special Power of Attorney grants someone the right to perform very specific actions for you. This power of attorney pertains to a specific matter.
Durable Power of Attorney
A Durable Power of Attorney is a type of general power of attorney but continues if the principal becomes incapacitated.
