Why Is It Important To Have A Power Of Attorney?

On Behalf of | Apr 10, 2021 | Estate Planning and Probate |

Having a Power of Attorney not only ensures someone you trust will be in charge of important life decisions, but the benefits of a Power of Attorney includes everything from paying bills to monitoring your healthcare decisions if you are unable to do so. A Power of Attorney is only valid during one’s lifetime and terminates when the person passes away.

A Power of Attorney can help to avoid costs, delays and emotional distress ahead of time. Also, it helps you prepare and not worry about the court appointing a guardian or conservator that may not know what you want. Having a Power of Attorney ensures any transactions and activities are kept private and not accessed by the public.

Since your healthcare and finances are a very private matter, it is important that you have direction and can make your own decisions rather than someone being appointed, in the event you become incapable. If you are in need of a Power of Attorney, or unsure of where to begin, you should consider speaking with an experienced attorney to help you make the right decisions.
