Power of Attorney

A power of attorney is a powerful document that allows one person (the attorney-in-fact) to act on someone else’s behalf (the principal). The powers conferred can be narrow or a limited purpose, such as a sale of a home or asset. On the other hand, the powers conferred can be nearly all-encompassing, in which the attorney-in-fact may act completely on the principal’s behalf. Some power of attorney documents also incorporate medical surrogate authority, which allows someone to make medical decisions on someone else’s behalf. Florida allows for a variety of power of attorney documents. The experienced Trust and Estate Planning Attorneys at the Law Office of Fausto A.
