Mississippi Power of Attorney Forms


Mississippi power of attorney forms are prominently used for two reasons: to assign an agent to make everyday representations on behalf of an individual (the principal) and to plan for any period of incapacitation due to age, injury, or mental illness. An agent (the attorney-in-fact) can be used to handle individual transactions or they can be given general authority to manage all of the principal’s financial affairs. The durable and medical power of attorney forms are used to appoint agents to act and make decisions for the principal if they become incapacitated. Whenever an individual is selecting a representative, it is very important that the candidate is competent and trustworthy, as the agent will often have access to their assets and confidential information.
