Legal Part II – Power of Attorney 7:11
There are times in life when you or your parent is not able to make certain legal or financial decisions. When those times come, having a trusted family member or friend be able to make decisions, carry out financial transactions or other non-medical choices means givng them your “power of attorney” (POA), the legal tool that authorizes them to act on your behalf. There are many types of POAs but all of them have the same underlying structure. That is that you need to decide who you can trust to make decisions for you and be certain that the person you choose is aware of the trust, responsibility, and
