Utah Power of Attorney Forms

Create a high quality document online now!

Utah Power of Attorney Forms must be filled out and issued when one individual is determined to appoint a competent adult to act on his or her behalf in certain situations. A variety of matters can be placed in the hands of such an agent depending on the circumstances surrounding the need. For instance, a durable power document will be required for an individual seeking to do some long-term planning by granting an agent his or her authority over financial affairs in the event he or she is no longer able to do so independently (i.e. after a traumatic medical even). Others may need to name a representative with specific institutions (i.e. a tax entity, hospital, or child’s school) which requires specific declarations to be made by the individual granting authority. Regardless of precisely what matters will be put in an agent’s care, the principal (who issues this paperwork) will need to make a few decisions as to the extent of power being delivered, when it can be utilized, and who can wield it in a deliberate and well-thought-out manner.

LawsTitle 75 (Uniform Probate Act)


Advance Health Care Directive (Medical POA) – The medical type of POA allows a person to appoint another to handle his or her health care decisions, if and when, it is clear that the principal can no longer communicate their wishes regarding treatment.

Durable (Financial) Power of Attorney – A durable form is called “durable” because the agent appointed under it can continue to act, even after the person who created the POA is no longer able to make his or her own decisions.
