Power of Attorney

A power of attorney is a legal document you (the “principal”) can use to appoint another person (the “agent”) to make decisions on your behalf. The requirements for a valid Power of Attorney include:

  • The person making the power of attorney (principal) must be mentally competent and under no undue influence such as coercion or duress
  • The power of attorney must be signed in the presence of a notary and include the signatures of two witnesses

The delegations of authority in a power of attorney can be as broad or as narrow as the principal wants it to be, within the limits of the law.

A power of attorney can be revoked by the principal at any time; otherwise, the power of attorney will terminate at death (of the principal).

Jennifer was recommended to me from a friend for my child’s parenting plan and child support case. Jennifer and her staff were wonderful to work with. They always had my best interest at heart but also upfront on the reality of how parenting plans work. She walked me through each step and fought for me where she needed to and talked to me about agreeing when needed. I would recommend Jennifer to family and friends! Going through a split is a very emotional time and she kept the level head for me when I could not.
