Create a high quality document online now!

Arizona Power of Attorney is a legal document that appoints a specific person to act as a legal proxy if an individual becomes incapacitated in some way. For example, if a person is hospitalized after a car accident, this document allows his or her designated proxy to take over temporarily and administer their estate, deal with bank accounts, pay bills, and even make medical decisions if required. It is important to create power of attorney documents while a notary can verify that you are of sound mind to make the decision and are not being coerced by other parties. All forms should be written pursuant to Title 14, Chapter 5, Article 5.
