Arkansas Power of Attorney Forms


Age, illness or an untimely accident could make it impossible for anyone to control his or her finances. In Arkansas, through a document called the Arkansas Financial Power of Attorney, it is possible to name a person, who is called your Agent, to pay your bills, deal with banks and government agencies and handle money matters of all sorts on your behalf. The chosen individual needn’t be an actual attorney, and in fact, seldom is. The key criteria are honesty, reliability and common sense. It is also important for the agent to know you and your core values very well, because he or she will be making some very important decisions for you. It is also useful for the agent to live close by, because it will often be necessary to deal with local individuals face-to-face.
The power of attorney can be drafted so as to take effect immediately. If so, it should be specified as durable, or it ends automatically if the doctor ever does have to certify that you have become incapacitated. More commonly, a “Springing”, durable power of attorney is opted for, which only takes effect once incapacity occurs.
If you designate your spouse as your agent, the power of attorney is abrogated upon divorce. A court can invalidate it on rare occasions, and you, yourself can terminate it any time as long as the court considers you to be mentally competent to do so. The chosen agent may turn out to be not available to serve, so it is important to designate an alternative agent.
All forms must be signed with at least two (2) witnesses present and are in accordance with the law stated in Title 28 – Wills, Estates, and Fiduciary Relationships > Subtitle 5 – Fiduciary Relationships > Chapter 68 – Powers Of Attorney.
