Connecticut Power of Attorney Forms

Connecticut Power of Attorney permits a person to handle someone else’s financial or medical decisions in the chance the person being represented cannot do so themselves. The person selected to be the “Attorney-in-Fact” person need not be a licensed attorney, and in fact, seldom is. The key factors that are applicable to choosing this person are integrity, honesty, and familiarity with the choices the principal would make had they the capacity to do so. It is also important that Attorney-In-Fact be available locally, because that will make it easier for the chosen individual to handle those needs that are more easily attended to in person rather than over the phone or via fax and/or the internet.
