New Hampshire Power of Attorney Forms provides a legal method by which a New Hampshire resident may appoint another to be their proxy in certain situations. That means that the person appointed would stand in the place of and act for the person who appointed them.  There are many different types of POAs depending on the circumstances of the principal (the person who makes the POA). Some convey broad powers over property and assets while others are for more limited circumstances. They all require that the principal choose someone they trust. All forms should comply with RSA 506:6.

All Types

Durable Power of Attorney – Grants financial powers that extend beyond the principal’s incapacity (cannot make his or her own decisions due to mental or physical disabilities), if the principal had not previously revoked it.

General Power of Attorney – Also grants general financial powers to another, however, unlike the “durable” form, if the person is determined by a physician to be unable to make his or her own decisions, the document becomes void.

Limited Power of Attorney – Allows for the appointment of a person to act in a special situation.

Medical Power of Attorney – A health care form that gives a person the opportunity to appoint another person to make health decisions in the event that they are unable to do so.
