When you think about growing older, are you afraid that you will become incapable of managing certain affairs? This is a valid fear, and there are legal actions that you can take to establish a plan for the future. A Power of Attorney document is the most important legal document that you can have prepared. This document allows you to designate an agent to conduct your business, financial, and medical affairs for you.
This document is especially important if you become temporarily or permanently incapacitated because it ensures that your business affairs will continue smoothly. If you are incapacitated without a Power of Attorney document, even your spouse may be unable to take over your affairs for you.
