The Tennessee durable power of attorney form lets a principal name a representative that can manage all their financial needs. The selected representative is known as an attorney-in-fact, though this person does not need to be an actual attorney. Whoever is chosen as attorney-in-fact should be someone trustworthy and well-known by the principal. It is also recommended to name an alternative representative in case the first choice turns out to be unavailable at times when needed.

  • This form does not cancel if the principal should become incapacitated or unable to think or make decisions for themselves.

The power of attorney can be canceled at any time with a revocation form so long as the principal is still competent. Note that if, as is often the case, the principal chooses their spouse as their attorney-in-fact, the agreement doesn’t end automatically upon divorce.
