Making a General Power of Attorney

  • What is a General Power of Attorney?

    Prepare for the unexpected with a General Power of Attorney. This document will allow you to grant someone you trust with broad authority to make decisions in your absence, sign documents for you, or otherwise manage your legal and financial matters.

  • What is a basic Power of Attorney?

    A General Power of Attorney is pretty basic, and it makes sure your financial and legal matters are handled by someone you trust if you become incapacitated and can no longer make decisions for yourself. This document will give your agent broad authority to act for you. If you would like to grant more limited or temporary powers, a Special Power of Attorney is more appropriate.

  • Where can I get Power of Attorney forms?

    You can make a General Power of Attorney for free, and it's easy using Rocket Lawyer customized documents. You'll need to decide which powers you want to grant to your Agent, the person you choose to act on your behalf. Depending on your state, you'll need to finalize your document by either signing in front of a notary public, two witnesses, or both. The Rocket Lawyer General Power of Attorney will customize your document so that it's legal in your state.

  • Can I create my own Power of Attorney form?

    The Rocket Lawyer document builder can create your personalized General Power of Attorney in minutes. Ask yourself the following questions beforehand to ensure a seamless experience:

    • Who will you designate as your Agent, Co-Agent, and Alternate Agent? Your Agent is the person you choose to act on your behalf; the Alternate Agent is the person who is your Agent if your Agent is unable to fulfill their duties; the Co-Agent acts alongside your Agent and they act and make decisions together on your behalf.
    • 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?

    You can skip questions and save your document to complete later if you need more information or more time.
