New Jersey Power of Attorney Forms

New Jersey Power of Attorney allows a person (known as the “Principal”) to select someone else (known as the “Agent” or “Attorney-in-Fact”) to maintain authority over their financial matters, health care decisions, and other personal and/or business affairs. There may be a point in a person’s life where they feel they want to hand over certain powers concerning their personal or business life to a trusted individual. Having a power of attorney in place means that the agent can perform certain tasks for the principal and, in some cases, this power will continue even if something happens to the principal (mental or physical disability or other type of incapacitation). The principal should be rational when making their selection; an attorney-in-fact must be trustworthy, competent, and responsible.
