Creating a Power of Attorney in Mesa

A type of legal document, powers of attorney allow another person to make decisions on your behalf when you’re unable to. In some cases, the document provides authority when it comes to financial decisions, but they can also imbue another person with the authority to make medical decisions on your behalf.

Here at Walk-In Wills, we understand that making decisions regarding your estate can be challenging. To help you make the right choices, our attorneys are here to guide you through the estate planning process to ensure the best possible results.

The Difference Between Financial and Medical Powers of Attorney

Financial powers of attorney provide another person with financial authority. For instance, your financial representative could do things like sell property or pay bills if you’re unable to do so on your own.

A medical power of attorney gives another party authority over medical decisions. In the event that you’re seriously injured and need medical care but cannot communicate your wishes, your representative would do so for you. This entails confirming or denying life preserving treatments and procedures.

Who Should You Choose to Handle Your Affairs?

Deciding who to provide power of attorney to is a major decision, as the person you select must exhibit certain key characteristics. Accordingly, it’s best to choose a person who has the following traits:

  • A careful and meticulous nature
  • Financial responsibility in their own lives
  • The ability to be assertive when faced with dissenting opinions
  • Some knowledge of medical or financial processes
  • A confident demeanor capable of handling conflict
