Powers of Attorney

Do I need an attorney to make a Power of Attorney?

Technically no, as long as the required form is made by a person over the age of 18, who has the legal capacity to make the document, and is properly notarized, the form will be recognized as a valid and enforceable Power of Attorney. Practically speaking however, due to the very serious nature of the document and the power that it can convey to the Attorney-in-Fact over your property and finances, it is very strongly recommended that you consult with an attorney and seek his or her advice in creating the document.
