Power Of Attorney in Virginia: A Powerful Tool
A ‘Power of Attorney’ is a legal tool that allows one to define who will have control and how decisions will be made on behalf of a person incapacitated by illness, injury, absence or age.
Decisions made through a power of attorney can include issues regarding property, bank accounts, debts, and other financial matters. A family with power of attorney documents in place may avoid long delays and court costs when their loved one is no longer able to make decisions. An advanced medical directive is a document similar to a power of attorney that gives one the ability to make decisions about medical care for another, if that individual is incapable of doing so.
Having a power of attorney is about more than legal issues. It is about peace of mind for you and your family. It is possible to appoint more than one person as your agent, allowing each different responsibility in decision making. Experienced legal counsel can ensure that your power of attorney documents specifically outline your wishes and intentions.
