      A power of attorney document gives someone (called your “agent” or “attorney-in-fact”) the authority to make legal, financial, or healthcare decisions on your behalf. The rules governing powers of attorney differ by state, and different types of powers of attorney accomplish different things. An estate planning lawyer in your area can answer your specific questions about powers of attorney.
