Kansas Power of Attorney Forms supplies a variety of options for a principal to delegate his or her authority to an attorney-in-fact. There are general forms which allow you (the principal) to approve another person (the attorney-in-fact) to manage your financial affairs or there are more specific template forms where you can assign powers for a discreet purpose such as representing your interests in front of the tax authorities or the motor vehicle department. When you anticipate not being available to handle one or more responsibilities you must live up to, assigning a separate entity to act on your behalf can potentially keep business running as usual despite your absence.  However, it is important that you choose a representative who is trustworthy and reliable to represent your interests. All forms should be written in accordance with Chapter 58, Article 6 (Powers and Letters of Attorney).
