PREPARING A POWER OF ATTORNEY & REPRESENTATION AGREEMENT

In the event you are unable to make decisions about your legal and financial choices, health or personal care, you can appoint an individual (or individuals) that you trust to make these important decisions for you. The person you appoint to make legal and financial decisions on your behalf is your power of attorney (POA), and the person you appoint to make medical, personal care and living arrangement decisions on your behalf is your representative. Your POA and representative can be the same person, or different people; whichever arrangement suits your desires.

Selecting your power of attorney and representative are significant decisions. It is important that you fully understand the implications of appointing these individuals to make decisions on your behalf.

Each POA document and representation agreement is unique, and preparing these documents requires the assistance of an estate litigation lawyer. At Bloom Law, we can help you outline what decisions and powers are delegated to your POA and representative, and under what circumstances. We will assist you in creating the POA document and representation agreement that suits your needs and preferences.

Assuring that the provisions of your POA document and representative agreement are properly defined will help avoid any potential family conflict in the event you are unable to make important decisions yourself. Your POA and representative can assist in all, or some of the following life decisions:

  • Power of Attorney
    • Financial Issues and associated transactions
    • Ownership and transfer or property
    • Legal issues
  • Representation Agreement
    • Living arrangements
    • Personal care issues
    • Medical care and associated issues
    • End-of-life issues
