What Is a Power of Attorney?

A Power of Attorney (POA) is a legal instrument that grants authority to another individual to act on your behalf in crucial financial and personal matters. This document ensures that your affairs will be managed according to your preferences, even if you cannot make decisions due to illness, incapacity, or absence.

Why Do You Need a Power of Attorney?

Life can be unpredictable, and sometimes circumstances prevent us from managing our affairs. It's essential to have a plan in place to ensure your interests are protected, even in challenging times. With Powers of Attorney, you can choose a trusted individual who can decide on your behalf when you cannot.

Illness, accidents, or even an extended absence can all disrupt your ability to handle important matters. Powers of Attorney provide a solution by allowing you to designate someone as your backup decision-maker. This person will have the legal authority to act on your behalf and safeguard your interests.

Fiduciary Duty in a Power of Attorney

The "fiduciary duty" is a legal obligation the individual granted Power of Attorney (POA) has toward the person they represent. It requires them to act in your best interests. Your POA agent must prioritize your interests above their own and avoid any conflicts. 

They must exercise reasonable care, skill, and diligence while making decisions and handling your affairs and must maintain strict confidentiality regarding your personal and financial information. Additionally, they should keep accurate records, provide periodic updates, and be prepared to account for their actions upon request.

Does the Power of Attorney Remove Your Rights?

A Power of Attorney (POA) does not remove your rights. It simply grants authority to another person to act on your behalf in specific matters when you cannot do so yourself. Your rights are not relinquished by granting a POA; it allows someone you trust to make decisions in your best interest. You can revoke a POA if necessary.

Types of Powers of Attorney

Powers of Attorney can be designed to address different kinds of circumstances. They can authorize your trusted person to manage your financial affairs or healthcare if you become incapacitated by illness or injury. POAs can also be created to enable someone to handle a single transaction for you, such as selling an asset or filing your tax returns, should you be out of town or out of the country. 

Powers of Attorney can include:

  • General Power of Attorney: This grants broad authority to an agent to handle various financial and legal matters on your behalf.
  • Limited/Specific Power of Attorney: With this type of POA, you can authorize someone to act on your behalf for a specific purpose or within a limited timeframe.
  • Durable Power of Attorney: Unlike a regular POA, a durable POA remains in effect even if you become incapacitated.
  • Medical Power of Attorney: Also known as a healthcare proxy, this allows you to designate an agent to make medical decisions on your behalf when you cannot do so.
  • Springing Power of Attorney: This POA comes into effect only when a specified triggering event occurs, such as a medical diagnosis or incapacity.

Understanding the legal aspects of Powers of Attorney is crucial to making informed decisions. To create POAs, you must be of sound mind and have the legal capacity to grant them. They can be modified or revoked anytime if you are mentally competent. It’s essential to choose a trustworthy and qualified person to be your “agent.” Finally, they must be executed appropriately and meet all Colorado legal requirements.

Commonly Asked Questions

Can I modify my Power of Attorney after it has been created in Greeley?

Yes, you can modify your Power of Attorney after it has been created as long as you are mentally competent. It is important to consult with a Greeley attorney to make any changes to ensure that the new terms are legally sound and accurately reflect your current wishes. This flexibility allows you to adapt your Power of Attorney to changing circumstances or preferences.

What is the importance of having a Medical Power of Attorney in Greeley?

Having a Medical Power of Attorney in Greeley is important because it allows you to appoint someone to make healthcare decisions on your behalf if you're unable to do so.

    "I highly recommend Brian Klein at Peek Goldstone"
    Having received poor advice from a different law office and attorney, I was feeling distressed due to the criminal charges made against me. Seeing an ad for Peek Goldstone in my local paper, I gave them a call. Right from the initial consultation I knew I had found the right person for the job! Brian Klein treated me with respect and was nothing short of brilliant in his ability to leave no stone unturned in order to represent me in the best possible light. Will you have to pay for his services? Yes. Will it be worth it? Yes! I highly recommend Brian Klein at Peek Goldstone for your criminal case.

      "Scott was always attentive to our needs."
      I’m what they called a satisfied customer, both on a professional and personal level Scott was always very respectful and attentive to what our needs were and what we were looking to get out of this case. Overall I can say and recommend to hire him on since he was always approaching the case as if it was his, kept in contact as much as possible and always was able to answer any question to the best of his abilities also always well dressed and on time for all the court dates.

      Monique did an amazing job representing me throughout my case. She understood exactly what I wanted/needed to resolve my case. She took the time to explain all possible outcomes, even the ones not favorable to me in order to prepare me for whatever might happen in court.

      "Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to."

      Throughout my divorce and custody proceedings Scott has offered excellent legal advice and ensured that I was well informed of my options and the next steps in the process. He has provided realistic expectations and treated myself, as well as my family, with respect and understanding.

      Scott is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I strongly recommend Scott to anyone in need of high- caliber legal representation.

      - Cindy
      "I could not have asked for better representation."

      Came to Scott with a very difficult case where opposing party already had a few victories thanks to another attorney I hired that did not do so great and I needed them reversed.

      Scott diligently set out to get them corrected. One by one they all fell. All the while he was VERY good at keeping me informed of the process and ensuring that he was going after just what I wanted. I could not have asked for better representation.
