What is Durable & Non-Durable Power of Attorney in Florida?

There are two forms of "power of attorney" which include:

  • A durable power of attorney is a legal document that gives your chosen representative, or agent, the power to act in your place. If you become incapacitated, these legal documents will empower your representative to take charge of your medical and financial needs.
  • A nondurable power of attorney differs in that it is automatically terminated upon your incapacitation. Without a power of attorney, your loved ones will have to go to court to receive the authority to handle your affairs.

It’s always best to be prepared for the worst. If you become incapacitated and unable to make decisions regarding your quality of life, having a durable power of attorney is your best option. At Vanover Law Firm, we are experienced in executing power of attorney documents for your medical and financial needs.

If you need to create a durable power of attorney, contact Vanover Law Firm at (850) 999-0006.

Financial Power of Attorney

A financial power of attorney, or durable power of attorney for finances, gives your agent the ability to manage all your financial matters when you are incapacitated. Your agent will be able to review your financial accounts, cash your checks, and file your taxes.

Medical Power of Attorney

A medical power of attorney, or durable power of attorney for health care, is a health care directive that grants your agent the right to make choices for your medical care. Your agent is legally bound to follow your health care wishes per the power of attorney, and will be able to work with your doctors to ensure you receive the care you desire.
