Power of Attorney

Revoking power attorney

T. Phillip B.

Answered Feb 18, 2022

Typically anything written which indicates you are revoking it should be sufficient. It should be delivered to your agent. I would also deliver it to any banks or other places where your agent may use the POA.

Durable Power of Attorney for Finances

Illinois

Asked on Apr 19, 2023

What’s the Difference between General POA and Durable POA

I’m trying to get POA over my Mother Financial because she not Paying the Mortgage which is past over due along with some Bills she hasn’t paid on in months I don’t us to lose our home and she suffers from Dementia and we Both recently suffered from a stroke I would appreciate if you respond to my message beside With a Hi There !

T. Phillip B.

Answered Jun 3, 2023

I'm not a fan of either term as I find they just confuse things. Durable usually is referring that it remains effective after incapacity. Sometimes general is looked at as terminating at becoming incapacitated. Another term which comes up is springing which this one makes more sense where it isn't effective immediately but upon a date or occurrence (usually someone being deemed incapacitated). I don't think I'd ever create a POA where it terminates at incapacity since that's when I'd need it to work. Now you say your mother has dementia. Will she understand what she is signing and the purpose of the document? If not, she doesn't have the required mental capacity to establish a POA and will have to have a guardian appointed by the court.

Last Will and Testament

Illinois

Asked on Mar 21, 2023

How often should I review and update my will?

I am asking this question because I want to ensure that my will is up-to-date and reflects any changes in my life circumstances, such as marriage, divorce, birth or adoption of a child, or changes in my financial situation. I am also interested in understanding how frequently I should review and update my will to ensure that my assets are distributed according to my wishes in the event of my death.

Talin H.

Answered Apr 21, 2023

You basically just answered your question. You should review and update your will whenever a major life event happens that might influence how your assets are distributed in the will. The rule of thumb is the addition or subtraction of a family member, or addition, or subtraction of a major asset like a home purchase.

Trying to become a poa

My uncle needs a power of attorney

Holly T.

Answered Jun 17, 2022

A POA is best done through an attorney to ensure the verifying/interested parties are proper, the agreement includes what the principal wants, the principal is competent in case of a challenge and it's filed properly if necessary, for example if it will be used to transfer property. All persons should have a POA, HCPOA, Advanced Directives and Will. You can also pull the POA form out of the general statutes of NC. The form is included in the law.

Do I need a lawyer to get a power of attorney

My uncle is an elderly man and his wife passed away in January of this year. She did everything as far handling all of the important things. He doesn't understand a lot of things. He asked me if I would take over everything for him. So I think I need to get a power of attorney to be able to do tnat.

Rebecca R.

Answered May 3, 2022

A power of attorney allows you to make decisions and dispose of property, it does sound like one might be helpful in your situation. When an attorney writes up the power of attorney, you have a range of permissions to cover all the needs of your individual situation. You’ll want to be sure that you have the ability to write checks, etc. Additionally, the power of attorney will be useful if other family members challenge your decisions or actions. Drafting the document is a fairly straightforward process, and most attorneys will bill 1-2 hours depending on whether you need additional documents for healthcare and estate decisions.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
