North Dakota Power of Attorney Forms

North Dakota Power of Attorney Forms grant broad or specific financial, medical, or other legal powers to a representative of the principal’s choosing. These forms can only be executed when the principal is of sound mind and is competent enough to make important decisions. Most power of attorney documents become ineffective once the principal is incapacitated; however, the principal has the option of creating a power of attorney that remains valid in the event of a debilitating accident or illness. Once the representative, or “attorney-in-fact,” has signed the document, they must perform their duties to the best of their abilities. Even though an attorney-in-fact is bound to the terms of the contract, the principal should choose someone they know and trust to act with the principal’s interests in mind.
