General Powers of Attorney in Colorado | Boulder Estate Planning Lawyer
As a Boulder estate planning attorney James Newell routinely help clients with financial powers of attorney. A general power of attorney (PoA) is an instrument in which someone grants someone else the authority to act on behalf of the principal in matters pertaining to the handling of property. Like medical powers of attorney, most general powers of attorney are durable, which means that they remain in force even past the point of the principal’s incapacity. Some general powers of attorney are standing, meaning they take effect upon being signed by the principal, while others are “springing,” meaning they take effect upon the occurrence of some specified event (e.g., the principal’s incapacity) or at some specified date in the future.
