Durable Power of Attorney Tennessee Form – Adobe PDF
The Tennessee durable power of attorney form lets you name a representative that can manage all your financial needs. The selected representative is known as an Attorney-In-Fact, though this individual does not need to be an actual attorney. Whoever is chosen as Attorney-in-Fact should be someone you trust and have known for a long time. It is also recommended to name an alternative representative in case your first choice turns out to be unavailable at times when needed.
“Durable” Definition – § 34-6-102
Laws – § 34-6-103
Signing Requirements – No statutory signing requirement. However, the power of attorney should be signed by the principal in the presence of two (2) attesting witnesses or a notary public.
- This form does not cancel if the principal should become incapacitated or unable to think or make decisions for themselves.
You can cancel your durable power of attorney at any time with a revocation form so long as you are still competent. Note that if, as is often the case, you choose your spouse as your Attorney-In-Fact, the agreement doesn’t end automatically upon divorce.
