Making an Ohio Power of Attorney

  • What is an Ohio 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 Ohio 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 Ohio?

    A Power of Attorney 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.

    Powers you can grant your agent can include the ability to change the beneficiaries on your accounts, to exercise fiduciary powers that the principal has authority to delegate, to create a trust on your behalf, and other actions.

  • How do I get power of attorney in Ohio?

    Power of attorney rights are granted to an "agent" by a principal, the person who is giving authority to someone else. The principal will decide whether the agent will have broad or specific authority to act in all or specific situations.

  • Where can I get a Power of Attorney form?

    Making a Ohio 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?
    • Will your agent have authority over any of your assets, businesses, trusts, or real estate?
    • Who will witness the signing of this document?

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

  • Does a Power of Attorney need to be notarized in Ohio?

    A notary public should sign your Power of Attorney. Having a principal's signature notarized will make it harder for a third party to challenge the validity of the signature, and allows the document to be "recorded" for use with real estate transactions, if recording becomes necessary or advisable.
