Powers of Attorney in Gulfport, MS

Establishing a Power of Attorney with a Gulfport Probate Lawyer

A power of attorney is a document that is used to appoint a trusted individual, an "agent," to make important financial and medical decisions for you. Depending on which type of POA is established, it affects the level of control that the agent has and the length of time that they are supposed to step in.

From a limited power of attorney to a durable power of attorney to a medical power of attorney, a Gulfport probate lawyer can help you establish a POA that is most appropriate for your needs. At PMTK, we can provide you with the extensive knowledge you need to make this important decision.

Different Types of Powers of Attorneys

  • General Power of Attorney: This document allows you to appoint an agent to make all of your financial decisions. It stays effective up until you pass away or become incapacitated.
  • Durable Power of Attorney: Unlike any other type of POA, a durable power of attorney remains effective even when you become incapacitated. The agent in this scenario is able to make financial decisions for you when you are of sound mind and even when you are not.
  • Limited Power of Attorney: This allows you to choose an agent to make specific financial decisions. You are to incorporate these exact instructions into the terms of your limited power of attorney.
  • Medical Power of Attorney: A medical POA is the only type of document that allows you to appoint someone to make important medical decisions. This form allows you to specify exact health care wishes and allows an agent to step in if you become incapacitated or unable to speak for yourself.
  • Springing Power of Attorney: By creating a springing power of attorney, you can determine when you want an agent to step in. Whether on a specific date or during a specific event, this type of document becomes effective sometime during the future.
