Create a high quality document online now!

Hawaii Power of Attorney Forms is a type of legal document that allows an individual (the “principal”) to confer authority upon another party (the “agent”) to act in the principal’s place in certain circumstances and situations. Some powers of attorney are broad and can be used in wide-ranging situations for an extended period of time, while others are specialized for a given situation or limited for a certain time period. Probably the most important thing to consider when using any of these forms is who your agent will be. Is the person trustworthy, responsible and available? These are considerations that you must take into account as the agent will be making decisions that affect you and your assets.

Advance Health Care Directive (Medical POA) – This form allows a person to choose certain an agent to make healthcare decisions when the principal is no longer able to make decisions.

Durable (Financial) Power of Attorney – This type of POA allows you to designate a trusted agent to continue to act on your behalf even in the event that you can no longer make decisions for yourself.

General (Financial Non-Durable) Power of Attorney – This form is different from a “durable” form in that it becomes void if the principal becomes incapacitated.
