Making a North Dakota Power of Attorney

  • What is a North Dakota Power of Attorney?

    A North Dakota Power of Attorney (PoA) is a legal document that grants a person or entity permission to manage legal and financial affairs for you, such as accessing accounts, signing contracts, and selling your property.

    The person granting permission is called the "principal," while the people or organizations obtaining powers are known as the "agents" or "attorneys-in-fact. Designed for North Dakota residents, our Power of Attorney can be used in Grand Forks County, Cass County, Burleigh County, and in every other part of the state. All North Dakota PoA forms from Rocket Lawyer can be completely personalized for your unique circumstances. This official document will provide confirmation to financial institutions and other parties that your chosen agent can sign documents or take other actions for you.

  • How can I get power of attorney in North Dakota?

    It's fast and easy to grant or receive the support you need with a free North Dakota Power of Attorney template from Rocket Lawyer:

    1. Make your document - Answer a few general questions and we will do the rest
    2. Send or share it - Review the PoA with your agent or seek legal help
    3. Sign it and make it legal - Required or not, notarization and witnesses are encouraged

    This solution is often notably less expensive and less time-consuming than finding and working with your average law firm. If necessary, you can fill out a PoA on behalf of a relative, and then have that person sign once you've drafted it. Please keep in mind that for this document to be considered valid, the principal must be mentally competent when they sign. In the event that the principal has already been declared incompetent, a conservatorship could be required. When dealing with this situation, it would be best for you to speak to an attorney.

  • Who should have a North Dakota PoA?

    Every person over 18 ought to have a Power of Attorney. While it's tough to think about, there will likely come a day when you can no longer make decisions on your own. There will also be times when you are merely out of reach. Typical situations in which you may find power of attorney to be useful include:

    • You are getting older or dealing with limited mobility or ongoing health issues
    • You intend to move or travel abroad
    • You would like to authorize someone to take legal actions or make decisions on your behalf if you are absent or become legally incompetent
    • You have plans to move out of your home and into a care facility

    Whether this North Dakota Power of Attorney is being prepared as part of a long-term plan or produced in response to an unexpected emergency, notarization and/or witnesses can help to protect your document if a third party disputes its authority.

  • Which type of Power of Attorney do I need in North-Dakota?

    Power of Attorney documents can be classified in multiple ways. They are primarily based on how long the powers will remain valid, when they will come into effect, and what they offer authority over. Most often, you will see them defined in the four groups below:

    • Special Power of Attorney - Grants a limited scope of authority over specified matters
    • General Power of Attorney - Grants broad powers over your affairs
    • Springing Power of Attorney - Comes into effect based on certain events or criteria
    • Durable Power of Attorney - Remains valid even if you become incapacitated or mentally incompetent
