Updated September 27, 2022

A Hawaii power of attorney represents 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.
