Arkansas Power of Attorney Forms

Arkansas Power of Attorney enable residents of the State to nominate a representative, or agent, to act on their behalf in a variety of circumstances. The chosen individual needn’t be an actual attorney, just a trusted individual over the age of eighteen (18) who is responsible enough to manage one’s finances, to make healthcare decisions, to care for children, or perform any other function the principal (individual assigning power of attorney) cannot carry out due to incapacity or unavailability. The type of form will determine whether the authority extends beyond the principal’s loss of decisional capacity just as it will define the task(s) for which the agent is being assigned.
