New Jersey Healthcare Power of Attorney basics

A New Jersey Healthcare Power of Attorney can ensure that someone you trust can make medical decisions for you if you become incapacitated.

How do I get a Power of Attorney in New Jersey?


Obtaining a Medical Power of Attorney is a fairly straightforward process. In just a few minutes, you can complete a Power of Attorney form online through Rocket Lawyer and decide which powers you want to grant to your agent. You'll need to finalize your document by signing in front of two witnesses, a notary public, or a lawyer.


What is the difference between durable and general power of attorney?


A General Power of Attorney ends when you become incapacitated. Contrastingly, a Durable Power of Attorney contains specific language which maintains your agent's authority even if you are unable to communicate or make decisions for yourself.
