[What is a Power of Attorney?]

US Territories Power of Attorney

A Power of Attorney is used to give someone you trust the legal authority to manage your financial, property, and/or legal matters. Often, a Power of Attorney is used to ensure that your affairs will be administered according to your wishes in the event that you become mentally or physically incapable. Alternately, it may be convenient for persons who will be away for an extended period, and unable to personally sign documents or make financial and property decisions.
