Durable Power of Attorney South Carolina Form – Adobe PDF
The South Carolina durable power of attorney form allows you to name a person who can make any type of financial decision on your behalf. While seldom an actual attorney, the person that represents you needs to be someone who you trust to do everything from paying bills to managing your investments. An important factor in the choice of your Attorney-In-Fact (the representative) is local availability in order to better accomplish monetary tasks best fulfilled on a face-to-face basis.
“Durable” Definition – § 62-8-102(2)
Laws – § 62-8-104
Signing Requirements – Notary Public and Two (2) Adult Witnesses (§ 62-8-105).
A spouse is a typical choice for this office, but be aware that the agreement doesn’t end if you divorce. However, it does end upon your death or if the Attorney-In-Fact turns out to be unavailable when needed, so it is wise to name an alternate. You can revoke it at any point while you are mentally competent, and the court will do so if it determines you weren’t so when you signed it.
