North Carolina Power of Attorney Forms is a set of documents by which an individual can legally appoint another to represent him or her in a predetermined matter(s). This type of authority can be granted in a variety of situations and circumstances. For instance, using a durable POA, you can appoint someone to take care of a broad range of financial matters on your behalf, if you become incapacitated. Using a healthcare POA, you can appoint someone to represent your interests by making medical decisions for you should you be incapacitated or otherwise unable to communicate your preferences. Others are used in more limited situations including for motor vehicle transfers and titles or for tax situations. It is important that you review the documents carefully in order to ascertain which document fits your needs.

Durable Power of Attorney – Used when you want to appoint a trustworthy friend or relative to handle your financial affairs. It is often used in long-term planning situations as it continues to be effective even after the person creating the POA becomes incapacitated.

General Power of Attorney – Similar to the durable in that it is for general financial affairs, however, this automatically terminates upon the principal’s incapacity, so depending on your situation and your needs, you would need to decide which type is best for you.

Health Care Power of Attorney – For use in health care situations where you are unable to communicate your wishes to your health care providers. This allows you to appoint someone you know and who knows you to handle those decisions. You will want to make sure the person you appoint is aware of your treatment preferences.

Limited Power of Attorney – Used typically in discrete transactions. For instance, you may anticipate being away when the closing of your vacation home is supposed to take place. This form allows you to appoint someone to handle that transaction while you are away.

Minor Power of Attorney – Form is for use by parents of minor children who, on occasion, may need someone to take care of their kids while they are away. This gives the caretaker the ability to act on the children’s behalf in the event of an emergency or school issue when the parents can’t be reached.

Real Estate Power of Attorney – Allows an individual to have the ability from the landlord to sell negotiate, and close on a piece of real property to their benefit.
