At the end of the day, let us worry about the details. You are in good hands and we will walk you through this process step by step.
In What Ways Can a Power of Attorney Document Be Used?
There are a large number of scenarios in which a power of attorney could be useful. As examples, consider the following scenarios:
1. Michelle is an elderly woman who has recently become home-bound. She also becomes nervous and confused when faced with making financial decisions. Michelle decides to grant a power of attorney to her daughter for the purpose of writing checks and paying for her medicine, groceries and other personal items.
Without this in place, Michelle would have to handle these affairs on her own.
2. John and Mary have a growing family. In addition, they have some joint accounts, but also some sole accounts. If one of them becomes incapacitated, the other person could not access their sole accounts without a power of attorney.
So, John and Mary have a power of attorney drafted to avoid this situation.
