Arizona Power of Attorney Forms

Arizona Power of Attorney allows an individual (“principal”) to appoint a legal representative (“agent” or “attorney in fact”) to operate on their behalf. The decisions that the agent will have authority to make will vary depending on the type of POA form signed and the scope of power assigned within the legal document. There are a multitude of reasons why an individual would draft a power of attorney; they may anticipate losing decisional capacity and require a loved one to care for their needs once they become incapacitated, they may need a financial representative to gain access to their bank accounts and manage their estate, or they may need to assign a trusted guardian to care for their children. Whatever the reason, both parties (the principal and attorney-in-fact) will need to sign the document verifying their consent.
