The West Virginia durable power of attorney form can be created by a resident to designate someone else to have the ultimate rights to handle every facet of their financial capabilities. Under the Uniform Power of Attorney Act, the document remains in effect if the principal should become incapacitated; that is, if they lose the ability to make decisions for themselves. Any and all powers granted to the representative should be identified via the principal’s initials inscribed on the form adjacent to each applicable power.
