Updated April 20, 2022

A Washington D.C. general power of attorney allows someone to make financial transactions on another’s behalf under non-durable circumstances. Unlike a Durable Power of Attorney, the general version does not remain valid if the principal should become incapacitated. Therefore, once the principal loses their capability to think for themselves, this document becomes void. A general power of attorney is common for business partners so an individual can sign papers on the other’s behalf while they are not in the area.

Signing Requirements – Notary public.
