Power of Attorney

قَالَ اجْعَلْنِي عَلَىٰ خَزَائِنِ الْأَرْضِ إِنِّي حَفِيظٌ عَلِيمٌ

سورة يوسف، آية ٥٥

Power of Attorney

A Power of Attorney is a legal document that allows you to appoint someone you trust to act on your behalf in financial and legal matters. The person you appoint can act on your behalf while you are alive or if you become incompetent.

A Power of Attorney allows your loved ones to attend to your affairs when you cannot - including paying bills, dealing with medical insurance, managing real estate, and everything in between.   

Without a Power of Attorney:

If a person has not appointed an agent to act on their behalf, family members will be forced to petition the court for an order authorizing someone to act on your behalf and access your finances.

If you become incompetent to handle your own affairs, and you have not signed a POA:

  • You have no say in who the court appoints to handle your finances and affairs.
  • You have no say in the scope of power granted by the courts to handle your finances and affairs.
  • A family member's application could be refused, and the court could appoint counsel instead.
  • You may not be able to sell jointly held assets until the court appoints counsel.
