The Kansas durable power of attorney form is a document that authorizes a third party to act and execute legal documents on behalf of the principal. This type of power of attorney enables the representative to make decisions for the principal in the event of their incapacitation. The individual appointed as attorney-in-fact does not need to be a lawyer, most individuals choose their spouse or a close relative. If an individual chooses their spouse as their attorney-in-fact and subsequently divorces, in accordance with Kansas law, the contract automatically ceases. As long as the principal is mentally competent, they can end the agreement at any time by authorizing a revocation form.
