Powers of attorneys take many different forms in Michigan. The power of attorney is a representative authorized to make decisions and act on your behalf. Their powers can be broad (complete authority) or narrow (single transaction), depending on the choices you make.
At EstateGenius, we take into consideration your needs and help you determine what type of power of attorney will best address your specific circumstances.
Many types of powers of attorneys exist in Michigan. You can choose a durable power of attorney for financial decisions, a general power of attorney that (unlike the durable) terminates when you become incapacitated, limited power of attorney created for a specific purpose, medical power of attorney for health care decisions, or powers of attorneys for minor child guardianship, real estate, vehicle purchases, and taxes.
A power of attorney does not limit or prevent you from taking care of financial and health matters. You can specifically determine what the power of attorney can and cannot do. Further, you continue to make decisions regarding your finances and health; a power of attorney is there to act on your behalf when you cannot.
You want to predict all the possible things in life that can happen, including an untimely disability or death, and prepare for them. Powers of attorney, as part of your overall estate plan, offers real solutions when hard decisions need to be made and when your family remains dependent on those decisions.
