Making a New Jersey Power of Attorney

  • What is a New Jersey 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 New Jersey 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.

  • How do I get power of attorney in New Jersey?

    Obtaining power of attorney is a fairly straightforward process. As a principal—the individual granting authority—you can complete a Power of Attorney form online through Rocket Lawyer. You can decide which powers you want to grant to your agent and finalize your document by signing in front of two witnesses and a notary public or a lawyer.

  • How do I get power of attorney for elderly parents in NJ?

    It is best to get a power of attorney for elderly parents before they become incapacitated. Once an individual becomes incapacitated, filing for guardianship may be necessary. Talk to a lawyer if you need assistance with this process.

  • Can I do a Power of Attorney myself?

    Yes, making a New Jersey 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 and successor agent?
    • Would you like your Agent to act on your behalf in all situations or only in specific situations?
    • Will your Agent be authorized to manage any business that you own?
    • Who is your first and second witness?

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

  • Is a POA public record?

    If you are using a POA to make a real estate transaction and it is required to be filed with the county recorder, then it will most likely become part of the public record.
