Key Times to Establish a Power of Attorney in Sarasota

A power of attorney is an important legal tool that should be examined in a variety of situations. In essence, considering and creating a power of attorney document should occur before the need arises, ensuring that one's interests and assets are protected when they are no longer capable of managing them independently.

Below are common reasons to create a POA:

  • When planning for unanticipated circumstances such as illness or accidents that may render an individual unable of managing their affairs.

  • Ensure that financial affairs are effectively managed during one's absence when traveling extensively, serving in the military, or seeking treatment for a severe health condition.
