A durable general power of attorney is an important estate planning document. It provides for an attorney-in-fact for financial and other non-medical matters. The power of attorney can be effective immediately or upon disability. Having a power of attorney in place is particularly important for the elderly and persons with serious medical issues. If there is no power of attorney, then a court guardianship action may be necessary – which action can be time consuming, expensive and possibly contentious.
