Updated on May 5th, 2023

A Kentucky general power of attorney form allows individuals to authorize a third party to act as their attorney-in-fact. The attorney-in-fact will be responsible for, among other things, dealing with banks, government departments, creditors, debtors, and investments on behalf of the principal. Unlike a durable power of attorney, this contract does not remain valid if the principal should become incapacitated or mentally disabled. It should be noted that if the principal chooses their spouse to be their attorney-in-fact, the agreement does not automatically end in the event of a divorce in Kentucky.

Signing Requirements (§ 457.050) – Two witnesses and a notary public.
