Michigan Power of Attorney Forms


Michigan power of attorney forms authorize a representative to make decisions and act on behalf of the principal (the individual being represented). The arrangement may be limited to authorizing the representative to handling a single transaction or they can receive total authority to manage the principal’s finances. The durable and medical power of attorney forms allow individuals to elect agents to handle their financial and medical needs if they become incapacitated due to injury, old age, or illness. Most powers of attorney must be validated by the signatures of two (2) subscribing witnesses or a notary public.
