Regulating Powers of Attorney in Santa Rosa

Work with a Seasoned Santa Rosa Estate Planning Lawyer

When considering your future, it is imperative that you create a comprehensive estate plan. Having a powers of attorney set up is a crucial part of this plan. A powers of attorney is a document that allows you to deem an individual who will be responsible to act on your behalf and make decisions in your best interests. This document would become immediately effective if you were to become incapacitated in any way and were no longer able to make important choices for yourself.

When you create this estate planning document, you can have peace of mind knowing that your interests and personal wishes are followed. At Gullotta Law Group, we are here to help you make a powers of attorney that will stand the test of time and provide the comfort and assurance you and your loved ones deserve in trying situations.

If you would like to setup a comprehensive estate plan that includes a powers of attorney, please feel free to reach out to our Santa Rosa firm or fill out a free case evaluation.

What types of powers of attorney are available?

It is important to understand the different types of documents you can create, as they will provide different avenues of control for the individual you choose to oversee your estate if you were to become capacitated.

The following powers of attorney may be created and added in to your estate plan:

  • Durable: Through this document, you can select an agent who will make decisions on your behalf in the event that you become incapacitated. It will stay in place until you pass away.
  • General: This legal document allows for an individual to act on your behalf and make important choices or decisions when needed; however, it is nullified if you become incapacitated.
  • Limited: When you set up this type of document up, it imparts authority to the agent you choose. However, the agent can only act within the parameters established by the document itself.
  • Springing: This legal document becomes effective at a specified time; either when you want the agent to begin acting for you, or when you become incapacitated and are unable to make decisions.
  • Health care: Through this document, you can select a specific agent who will act on your behalf in matters pertaining to your healthcare, including certain types of treatment you would like to avoid.

Creating a powers of attorney is a vitally important decision, as this document allows an individual to be put in charge of handling your affairs and making important choices when you are not able to.
