Power of Attorney in Arizona: Why Would I Need This?

If you become ill or incapacitated, you may need someone to make decisions for you. In some cases, you may need a Health Care and Mental Health Power of Attorney instead of or in addition to a financial power of attorney in Arizona. The facts of your case will determine the correct path for you but, generally, power of attorney in Arizona involves these types of legal considerations:

  • General Durable Power of Attorney (Financial)
  • Health Care and Mental Health Power of Attorney
  • Special Power of Attorney
  • Revocation of Power of Attorney

Your particular needs will dictate which, if any, of the aforementioned are necessary. But, in order for any of these to be legally binding, you should take action now. In the event of your incapacitation, you may need to have medical and health care decisions made for you, and someone to be take care of your financial responsibilities. These may have a lasting impact on your future and, potentially, your estate plan. By discussing your circumstances with us, you can have peace of mind knowing you have the right legal arrangements in place.

  • General Power of Attorney: As the title suggests, this is the most broadly defined type of power of attorney. This allows you to give another adult complete authority to act on your behalf in a variety of situations. These may be related to your personal finances, real estate, personal property, and your business dealings.
  • Special Power of Attorney: This grants very restricted and limited power to another individual to act on your behalf. This may be related to a one-time only transaction, for instance.
  • Health Care and Mental Health Power of Attorney: This power of attorney allows your agent complete authority to make medical and mental health decisions if you are incapacitated.
  • Revocation of Power of Attorney: If you want to cancel the power of attorney you have granted to another individual.

These definitions of powers of attorney in Arizona are only a small part of the complexities. The definitions are quiet straightforward. However, the intricacies of your particular situation need to be carefully considered. The far-reaching impact of granting another individual such power should be discussed with experienced and attentive attorneys.
