Longwood Power of Attorney Lawyer

Protect Your Wishes with a Power of Attorney

Even if you are healthy and well at the time you create your estate plan, it is important to consider the possibility of a serious accident or health emergency leaving you incapacitated. Naming a power of attorney gives one person (known as the agent) the power to act on your behalf should you become unable to make decisions regarding your own life. At Levy & Associates P.A., we can help guide you through the process of naming a power of attorney and explain the various options available to you.

Financial vs. Healthcare Power of Attorney

When you establish a power of attorney, you are choosing the person you trust to handle important decisions regarding your finances and health care. This person is legally allowed to act on your behalf as a fiduciary. You will be able to choose exactly what types of decision the agent can make based on the type of power of attorney you establish. Failing to do so means decisions about your medical care or finances could be left in unfamiliar hands.

There are two types of power of attorney documents, including:

  • Health care power of attorney: This document lets you name someone who you trust to make medical decisions on your behalf.
  • Financial power of attorney: This document lets you give power to another individual to make financial decisions and transactions for you. It can be total control over your finances or a more limited control, depending on your situation.

Another aspect of your decision is establishing how long the power of attorney will be in effect. A non-durable power of attorney is limited and only goes into effect if you become incapacitated. A durable power of attorney remains in effect.
