Missouri Power of Attorney basics

Whether it's after a serious accident, a major illness, or temporary time away, you can make a plan now and designate an Agent to make decisions on your behalf. A Missouri Power of Attorney document can grant your Agent(s) the authority to make decisions in your absence, sign documents for you, or otherwise manage your legal and financial matters.


When can I use the Missouri Power of Attorney document?


You may use the Missouri Power of Attorney document if:

  • You wish to give someone broad authorization to act for you if you are absent or otherwise incapable of acting or making decisions on your own behalf.
  • You wish to give someone the ability to handle certain financial or legal issues in your absence or if you become ill.
  • You wish to authorize someone to act on your behalf in case you become legally incompetent or incapacitated.

How do you get Power of Attorney in Missouri?


Creating a Missouri Power of Attorney is simple with Rocket Lawyer. Decide which powers you want to grant your Agent and Rocket Lawyer will have your document ready in minutes. You'll need to finalize your document by signing in front of a notary public.


How do you get Power of Attorney for someone in a hospital?


Once an individual is incapacitated, they no longer have the ability to make competent decisions and cannot sign legal documents. Before anything is to be done, make sure to check whether an existing Durable Power of Attorney already exists. If a Durable Power of Attorney is not in place, a court-appointed guardianship may be necessary.


Where can you get a Power of Attorney form?


Rocket Lawyer can make your personalized Missouri Power of Attorney in minutes. Simply answer some questions and Rocket Lawyer will build your document for you. Think about the following questions beforehand to make the process faster:

  • Who will you designate as your Agent, Co-Agent, and Successor Agent?
  • Would you like to grant your Agent broad or specific powers?
  • Will your Agent have authority over any of your assets, businesses, trusts, or real estate?
  • Will your Agent be compensated?

If you don't have all of the details you need, you can skip questions and save your document so you can complete it later.


Why is a Durable Power of Attorney called durable?


A General Power of Attorney ends when you become incapacitated. A Durable Power of Attorney, on the other hand, contains specific language which continues your Agent's authority even after you become incapacitated. In other words, it is "durable" because the duration of your Agent's authority is maintained after you become incapacitated and unable to act or make decisions on your own behalf.
