What Is Power Of Attorney?
A power of attorney is simply a legal document that gives someone else legal power to act on your behalf in the event that you become incapacitated. In order for someone to be granted power of attorney in the state of Texas, you must:
- Have the document signed in public by a notary
- Be in a good mental state when signing the document
- Ensure that the person assigned power of attorney is of legal age (at least 18 years old)
In addition, there are different types of powers of attorney, including:
- General power of attorney
- Durable power of attorney
- Medical power of attorney
- Financial power of attorney
