Free Power of Attorney Documents
A general power of attorney is a document signed by a person who is legally competent who desires to name someone else to engage in basic day-to-day business on behalf of that person (as though standing in that person's shoes), such as writing checks. It does not extend to health care decisions, however (see advance health care directives or living wills). A power of attorney does not operate beyond the death of a person, but some operate after the person making it has ceased to function competently.
