Also, you can limit the duration of the General Power of Attorney. Mr. Jones, as a lawyer in Hendersonville, NC, regularly prepares this power of attorney.

Durable Power of Attorney

A Durable Power of Attorney is a power of attorney that remains in effect even after principal becomes incapacitated or mentally incompetent. Also, it can be drafted to read that it only becomes operative when the principal becomes incapacitated or mentally incompetent. When the principal is incapacitated, the attorney-in-fact can still act on behalf of the principal as if the principal is competent and healthy. This document needs to meet other procedural steps such as filing in the register of deeds in the correct county. Mr. Jones, as a lawyer in Hendersonville, NC, regularly prepares this power of attorney.

Health Care Power of Attorney

This is a power of attorney that enables the attorney-in-fact to make health care decisions for the principal. It only becomes effective when the principal becomes incapacitated or mentally incompetent. The principal chooses a qualified person who will be able to make health care decisions for the principal when the principal is unable to make their own decisions because of incompetence or incapacity. Also, the document can be customized enabling the principle to express their wishes as to certain treatments. This power of attorney can be revoked at anytime through any method by the competent principal.

The Living Will helps by letting you express your right to die a natural death. This instrument becomes effective when a health care provider determines that the patient is incapacitated in a condition where the patient is unable to make decisions as to life sustaining treatment. A Living Will can also be revoked easily. Mr. Jones, as a lawyer in Hendersonville, NC, regularly prepares this living will.
