Are you looking for a power of attorney in Kansas City, Missouri? A Power of Attorney (POA) is a legal document that authorizes another person, known as an “agent” or “attorney-in-fact,” to act on your behalf in specific legal or financial matters. The agent is typically someone you trust, such as a spouse, family member, or close friend.
Often in the Kansas City, Missouri, area, power-of-attorney for healthcare is identified in one document and power-of-attorney for finances are identified in another. Most clients of Attorney Aaron Cook choose to prepare their powers of attorney as two documents, a general power for finances and a general power for healthcare, all in order to keep it simple and functional for others that will receive the documents.
A final consideration of powers of attorney is whether the power starts immediately, or if it is “springing”, meaning it becomes effective later, when the person granting the power becomes incapacitated. Attorney Aaron Cook offers free appointments at his Independence, Missouri office for clients from the Kansas City area, or by telephone conference for clients everywhere, to discuss powers of attorney and clarify answers.
