Create a high quality document online now!

Florida power of attorney forms provides a way for a person to assign his or her legal authority over his or her financial (and other) matters to another person. This allows the other person, or agent, to act on the person’s, or principal’s, behalf. Many people use this type of form when they know they are going to be away or they want to plan for a time when they may be incapacitated.

Since the agent will be acting in the principal’s place with the principal’s finances or other assets, it is vitally important that the principal choose someone they trust implicitly. Usually, the principal will choose a trusted friend or relative.
