Louisiana Power of Attorney Forms

Louisiana Power of Attorney are documents that allow a resident of the State to elect a representative to act on their behalf. The representative is called the attorney-in-fact and this individual will be granted specific powers based on the type of power of attorney form selected and the scope of authority granted therein. They may be asked to make health care decisions on the principal’s behalf and represent their wishes as relayed in an advance directive form. Alternatively, they may simply be asked to transfer the title of a vehicle from one owner to the other. Regardless of the exact purpose of the document, the selected agent will be required to act solely in the best interests of the principal and must not seek to benefit from the authority granted to them.
