Power of Attorney

Powers of Attorney can be confusing – what do they mean and why do you need one?

What is a Power of Attorney

A Power of Attorney is a formal legal document that gives another person the authority to represent you and do things on YOUR behalf, regarding your financial and legal affairs.
