How to Get a Power of Attorney
A California power of attorney (POA) can be used to grant certain powers to a trusted friend or relative in the event the person granting the powers (the principal) is unable or unavailable to act when required. The person acting on behalf of the principal is known as the agent. The agent is expected to make all decisions in the best interest of the principal. The power of attorney document can specify broad powers or narrowly defined powers. Additionally, the power of attorney document can be tailored to be in effect for a long period of time or a short period of time. You get power of attorney by having someone willingly and knowingly grant it to you in a signed legal document. He or she must be able to understand what a POA document represents, understand the effects of signing it, and clearly communicate his or her intentions.
