As part of your long term planning for estate and healthcare issues, you may find it necessary to have a New Jersey Powers of Attorney lawyer create certain documents that relate to your health care as part of your planning efforts. Attorney Robert F. Brogan, President of the Brogan Law Group, is experienced with helping his clients manage long term planning of their estates and assets. As part of this process, you should be sure to discuss the need for valid Powers of Attorney documents.
Powers of Attorney and You
A legal instrument called a “Power of Attorney” grants authority to another person to act on your behalf at such times when you are unable to manage your own affairs, due to illness, surgery or other circumstances. These documents can be written up to have limited or durable time limits. The person you appoint to act on your behalf legally can make binding decisions for you. This presents a potential problem in that you must be careful who you trust to carry out your wishes. Powers can be “general” or “specific” in scope. With a medical power of attorney, you are able to select the person you wish to represent you while you are incapacitated, and you can impose restrictions upon them. Powers of attorney can be revoked.
