We draft Powers of Attorney so that individuals may choose successor agents to make financial decisions on their behalf. There are various types of powers of attorney which are effective at different points—some right away and some upon incapacity. These powers include managing financial accounts, paying bills, depositing money, filing tax returns etc. There is also an option to choose a limited power of attorney, which is effective only for a limited purpose, such as purchasing real property. These documents are extremely important as they allow you to choose who will make financial decisions, as opposed to having a judge appoint someone who you may not want chosen, to manage your financial affairs. The Law Offices of Cheri E. Michaelis works directly with you to draft the appropriate powers of attorney for your needs.
