Durable Power of Attorney

Serving New York & North Carolina

A durable power of attorney is a legal document that grants someone you trust, known as your agent or attorney-in-fact, the authority to make financial and legal decisions on your behalf when you are unable to do so. This document ensures that your affairs are taken care of according to your wishes, even if you become incapacitated.

Why Do You Need a Durable Power of Attorney?

Having a durable power of attorney in place is crucial for several reasons:

  • Protection during incapacity: If you become mentally or physically unable to handle your financial and legal matters, a durable power of attorney ensures that someone you trust can step in and manage your affairs.
  • Avoiding guardianship proceedings: Without a durable power of attorney, your loved ones may need to go through a costly and time-consuming guardianship process to gain the authority to act on your behalf.
  • Continuity of financial management: With a durable power of attorney, your agent can continue to pay bills, manage investments, file taxes, and handle other financial matters on your behalf.
