Georgia Power of Attorney

Have you included Georgia power of attorneys in with your estate planning documents? If you are not sure, maybe you should check with your Georgia estate planning attorney. These are important documents you hope you never have to use. We are talking about durable power of attorneys for health care and financial concerns. Durable power of attorneys give the person you trust the power to make decisions for you if you are mentally unable to. These two documents can sit quietly in your safe and never get used, or, in the event of a serious accident, they could save your live and keep your business running.

While most power of attorneys become invalid when you are declared mentally incompetent to make decisions, your durable power of attorneys become effective. This gives your attorney-in-fact the power to take care of all your financial and medical needs. If you include a health care directive in your documents your attorney-in-fact will simply be following your instructions, and overseeing all of your health care providers, making sure they do the same.

With a durable financial power of attorney on file, your attorney-in-fact can take care of your bank deposits, paying your taxes, running your business and many other day to day tasks. Many times a spouse is named as your attorney-in-fact, and many states will automatically void your power of attorneys should a divorce take place. This does not happen in Georgia, your power of attorneys will stay in effect until you change them.

A general power of attorney is very similar to a financial power of attorney except it is even broader in the range of authority. Special power of attorneys are far more common in every day life. You may find the need to have someone close a real estate deal for you, a property power of attorney should take care of that situation. If you friend needs to take a car to an auction for you a vehicle power of attorney might be needed.

Forms for these Georgia power of attorneys are available at Legal Zoom. They are easy enough to fill out and attorneys are not needed, in most cases. When it comes to what is needed for your estate plan, your attorneys advice might prove very helpful. He may even offer to write the documents for a reasonable fee. Power of attorneys need to be notarized and most attorney offices can take care of that also.

I just want to thank you for this site. It answered my questions. I think many people that do research on the net take it for granted and when they find what they are looking for they forget "someone put time, money, etc into providing me with this information."

Thank you!
