Colorado Power of Attorney Forms convey legal authority to a trusted person expected to act on behalf of an individual during that individual’s absence. These types of forms can be used in a broad range of circumstances, including in a temporary situation where an individual will be out of town for a short period of time or in a long-term situation where an individual wants to protect him or herself in the event he or she becomes incapacitated. Because the person entrusted with the power will be able to take action on someone else’s behalf, it is important the individual granting the power trusts the person implicitly.
