South Carolina Power of Attorney Forms

South Carolina Power of Attorney Forms allow for the medical and/or financial representation of another person. All actions and decisions made on behalf of the principal must be done in the best interests and to the sole benefit of the person being represented. In the chance of incapacitation by the principal, two forms may be selected, known as ‘durable’ forms, that remain in effect during the time of mental incapacity. Therefore, it is recommended that when entering old age, the durable forms be implemented to ensure that the principal’s full rights will be represented and wellbeing cared for in medical emergencies.
