Florida Power of Attorney Forms


The Florida Power of Attorney forms allows for a person, usually elderly but may be for anyone, to choose an ‘Agent’ or ‘Attorney in Fact’ to handle actions and decisions on their behalf. According to the new Florida laws, all documents are considered ‘durable’, meaning the form continues to be valid even if the Principal becomes mentally ill or unstable, if it contains the following statement, “This durable power of attorney is not terminated by subsequent incapacity of the principal except as provided in chapter 709, Florida Statutes”.
If you get divorced and your spouse was designated as your Attorney-In-Fact, the agreement doesn’t automatically terminate as it does in most other states. The Principal can revoke a Florida Power of Attorney at any time that you are mentally competent to do so. At any time, the courts can invalidate a document if they deem it insufficient. It is important to designate an alternate Attorney-In-Fact, in case your first choice is not available and to always make sure the form is witnessed by two (2) non-blood related individuals that have no involvement in the assigned arrangement. A notary public may be sufficient as well.
All documents are in accordance with Florida law Title XL – Real and Personal Property > Chapter 709 – Powers of Attorney and Similar Instruments > Part 2 – Powers of Attorney
