Durable Power of Attorney – Santa Clarita and Valencia Estate Planning Lawyer

 

A power of attorney grants authority to a third person to make decisions on behalf of the person who granted the authority. The power of attorney can be general or specific. The power of attorney can include such matters as property, personal care, health care and many other matters. When the power of attorney is “durable,” it means that the power of attorney will continue to exist even if the person who granted the authority is incapacitated.

The Law Office of David Piotrowski assists people in the Santa Clarita Valley with creating a durable power of attorney. In order for the power of attorney to be “durable,” it must contain certain language that makes it durable. If the Santa Clarita durable power of attorney lacks language specifically making the power of attorney durable, then the power of attorney will terminate if the person who made the power of attorney becomes incapacitated.

If you are in the Santa Clarita Valley or Los Angeles and are considering an estate planning package that consists of a will, living trust, or durable power of attorney, contact the Law Office of David Piotrowski today.
