Legal Guidance To Get A Power Of Attorney In Orlando

A power of attorney (POA) is a legal document that gives an individual or entity the authority to act on behalf of another person in case of incapacitation or inability to make decisions independently. In 2011, the regulations guiding POA laws in Florida changed to include additional requirements, such as a mandatory statutory form. Therefore, enlisting legal guidance is crucial, as a simple mistake could invalidate the document.
