A General Power of Attorney document authorizes an individual (Agent or attorney-in-fact) to act on another's (Grantor or Principal) behalf in legal, financial, and business matters. This legal form can be used to handle general everyday needs or be limited for a specific function. As an example, a Power of Attorney form can be utilized when an individual can not personally handle a specific business or legal matter and wants to authorize another person to manage the matter on his or her behalf. Furthermore, a Power of Attorney can also be useful when a person is not able to make decisions due to mental or physical incapacities. This particular document takes immediate effect and remains effective until the Grantor dies or becomes incapacitated or disabled.

The word "attorney" is not used here to mean "lawyer". The person acting as the Attorney-In-Fact for the Principal does not need to be a lawyer. Almost anyone can be appointed an Attorney-In-Fact by a power of attorney. A Power of Attorney can always be revoked.

The following are just some of the important provisions contained in this All General Power of Attorney:
  • Name of address of Principal's and Agent's Locating and identifying the Parties;
  • Various powers granted to Agent Grants the Agent the power to enter contracts for the Principal, the power to maintain, manage, and insure Principal's property and the power to make gifts and charitable contributions;
  • Effective immediately: The Power of Attorney becomes effective immediately;
  • Termination up disability or death: The Power of Attorney will terminate upon the death, disability, or incapacitation of the Grantor;
  • Language about revocation: Stating that the Power of Attorney can be revoked at any time;
  • Notary Acknowledgment Block: It is important for the document to be notarized and avoids problems later if it's validity is ever challenged.

I had no trouble finding exactly what I needed, I printed it and was ready to go in minutes. The expense was minimal compared to going to an office supply store let alone an attorney. I actually went back and purchased another form I needed. I will use this anytime I need another item.

In regards to the legal forms, yes they were very helpful. I purchased these forms for my mother-n-law to complete. As we wanted her to get her business in order. She is 70 yrs. old... In the future I will purchase for myself. Thanks
