Washington Power of Attorney Forms

Washington Power of Attorney Forms make it possible for a principal to select an agent, a.k.a. “attorney-in-fact,” to carry out tasks and make decisions on their behalf. The powers granted may be for financial, health care, tax filing, or parental guardianship reasons. Under Washington law 11.125.040, the Principal may choose to have the form made durable, which means that the agent may continue to act even if the principal should become incapacitated. The majority of the power of attorney forms will need to be signed by the principal in the presence of a notary public or two (2) or more competent witnesses.
