Making a North Carolina Power of Attorney

  • What is a North Carolina Power of Attorney?

    If you need to assign a trusted agent to act on your behalf, then you may need to make a Power of Attorney. With a North Carolina Power of Attorney form, your agent(s) can be granted the authority to make decisions in your absence, sign documents for you, or otherwise manage your legal and financial matters.

  • What does power of attorney mean in NC?

    A Power of Attorney in North Carolina grants an "agent" powers to act on your behalf if you are not able to do so. You can choose for this power to begin immediately, on a specific date, or at any time when you become incapacitated. The powers granted in the Power of Attorney can terminate either on a specific date or upon your death.

    Specific powers can include the ability to change the beneficiaries on your accounts, create or change rights of survivorship, access the content of electronic communications, and other actions.

  • Do I need an attorney to make a Power of Attorney?

    No, you do not need an attorney to make a Power of Attorney. In fact, making a North Carolina Power of Attorney online is simple. Just answer a few questions, and Rocket Lawyer will build your document for you. Consider these questions beforehand to make the process speedier:

    • 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 for later.

  • Who keeps the original Power of Attorney document?

    The person granting power of attorney should keep the original document and distribute copies to their agent(s) and any other interested parties.

  • Does a Power of Attorney need to be recorded in North Carolina?

    No, a Power of Attorney does not need to be recorded in North Carolina unless it deals with real estate transactions or if it is used to do business on behalf of a person who has become incapacitated.
