Creative Estate Planning Solutions

A financial power of attorney can be drafted to cover virtually any situation. You can create a power of attorney that:

Is effective immediately — This type of document is especially useful in situations where an elderly person cannot manage his or her financial affairs, or is vulnerable to fraud.

Is contingent on a certain event such as incapacity — This document does not come into effect until a triggering event occurs such as the onset of incompetence or a comatose condition.

Has a limited duration — This power of attorney has a definite starting and ending point.

Is restricted to certain transactions — The power of attorney can cover all types of transactions, or it can be restricted to just one such as the sale of a house.

Names multiple agents — You can specify whether they can engage in transactions independently or must do so jointly.
