Louisiana Limited Power of Attorney Form

Updated June 07, 2023

A Louisiana limited power of attorney, when properly executed, is an official document that bestows an individual’s authority on another to act on behalf of the principal individual. Generally, such paperwork is employed when a specified transaction or limited circumstance is in effect and the principal requires aid in making sure a task or set of tasks are carried out on his or her behalf. Scenarios, where this document may be used effectively, would include a bill that needs to be paid, a mediation the principal cannot attend must take place, or an individual or agent must be granted access to principal records on a temporary basis for a specific purpose. It is important to clearly define the circumstance or transaction for which you are granting authority.
