South Carolina Durable Power of Attorney Form

A South Carolina durable power of attorney is a statutory form that lets a person choose someone else to handle financial decisions on their behalf. The person giving power (the "principal") should only appoint a trusted person (the "agent"), particularly because this "durable" version lasts the lifetime of the principal unless revoked.
