Cherry Hill Power of Attorney Lawyer

Assisting Clients with Powers of Attorney in Cherry Hill, New Jersey

A power of attorney is a written document that lets you appoint someone to handle your affairs in your absence or when you are unable to do so, such as in the event of illness or incapacity. The person or organization appointed is referred to as the Attorney-in-Fact or Agent. Many different types of power of attorney exist for different purposes and situations. If you need legal assistance in creating a power of attorney in or around Cherry Hill, please consult with the Cherry Hill power of attorney lawyer at the firm to discuss your legal matter. Attorney Tejal V. Patel offers a free initial consultation in which you can speak directly with her concerning your situation.

Different Types of Power of Attorney

The different types of power of attorney include a general power of attorney, special power of attorney, health care power of attorney, and durable power of attorney. A general power of attorney gives your agent authority to act on your behalf in a large variety of situations, usually handling all of your personal affairs during a time when you are not able to, such as when traveling. It may be used in an estate plan to have someone in charge when you are ill or incompetent. The type of affairs your agent may take care of may include banking, filing tax returns, buying, selling, or managing real estate or other property, maintaining businesses, hiring professional assistance, and other personal matters.

A special power of attorney gives only specific and limited powers to your agent, such as the handling of your banking, the selling of a specific property, or managing a business interest. A heath care power of attorney gives your agent the power to make decisions about your health care if you are unconscious, incompetent, or otherwise incapacitated. In this document, you can specify your preferences as to life-sustaining medical procedures. A durable power of attorney can be any one of the above powers of attorney with a durable clause added, meaning that it will take effect if you become mentally incompetent.

To create any kind of power of attorney document, whether as an estate planning tool or in some other situation, contact the Cherry Hill estate planning attorney at the firm as soon as possible.
