Ratification Of Power Of Attorney

Ratification of Power of Attorney

A Power of Attorney is the legal power you can give to a representative, usually a family member or a trusted individual. A power of Attorney is usually given to a selected individual in the occurrence of events such as: mental incompetence or absence. When an individual is given a Power of Attorney, they then become your attorney-in-fact or agent and may now make decisions for you. You may be able to give a trusted individual power over your financial matter such as tax paying or banking matters and may even work for Motor Vehicles.

To be able to legally appoint a representative as your attorney-in-fact, you will need to sign and complete a fill-in-the-blank form which is usually a few pages long. Completing a form is the ratification of Power of Attorney and is made official by the signing of the legal document. In order for this form to manifest fully, you must sign it in front of a notary public or in some states, witnesses.

A Power of Attorney ends when you declare so, you may be able to state a date as to when the Power of Attorney ends. Your Power of Attorney also ends if you revoke it, and you may be able to revoke it for a number of reasons such as: trust issues, wanting to take back full control over a business, wanting to appoint a new person to become an agent, divorce, or you are no longer absent and are fully able to make your own decisions. As long as you are mentally competent for all of the aforementioned situations, the discontinuance of the power of attorney will be granted. Finally, the Power of Attorney naturally ends at your death, which means that the individual you have assigned will no longer have any power over what is stated in the legal documents unless you mention them in your will as an “executor.”
