Oklahoma Power of Attorney Forms

Oklahoma Power of Attorney Forms allow the designation of an individual (the “Agent”) to make financial or medical decisions on someone else’s behalf. Each form serves a different purpose and comes with its own restrictions and obligations.

This type of form can protect the principal’s personal assets and business affairs from falling into the wrong hands. Whether the principal chooses a durable power of attorney or not, they should carefully consider who they name as their attorney-in-fact.
