North Carolina Power of Attorney Forms

North Carolina Power of Attorney Forms is comprised of nine (9) legally binding documents that can be used to establish (or revoke) a power of attorney arrangement between the principal and an appointed attorney-in-fact. A power of attorney grants the attorney-in-fact authority over specific areas of the principal’s life, such as finances, health care, taxes, etc. Some of these forms are temporary, giving the attorney-in-fact control over one or more specific tasks until that task is complete. Other POAs are more lasting and in some cases will remain in effect even if the principal becomes disabled or otherwise unable to make competent decisions. Therefore, it is important that the principal selects an attorney-in-fact that is unquestionably loyal and trustworthy, such as a close friend or relative.
