Louisiana power of attorney forms, or “mandate,” permits an individual to legally and officially designate a representative (“mandatory”) to act on their behalf when necessary. The term “mandatory” is used in Louisiana instead of “agent” or “attorney-in-fact” as used generally in the other 49 States.  A principal may use a power of attorney form for financial, medical, parenting, tax, or other related reasons. Once signed under the requirements set by Louisiana, the form is immediately available for use.
