Making a Tennessee Power of Attorney

  • What is a Tennessee Power of Attorney?

    A Tennessee Power of Attorney allows you to appoint a trusted agent to act on your behalf. The Tennessee Power of Attorney form grants your agent(s) the authority to make decisions in your absence. Through this document, you can assign an agent to sign documents for you and manage your legal and financial matters.

  • When should I use the Tennessee Power of Attorney document?

    You should use the Tennessee Power of Attorney document if:

    • You wish to give someone broad authorization to act for you if you are absent or incapable.
    • You wish to give someone power to handle certain financial or legal issues in your absence or if you become ill.
    • You wish to authorize someone to act on your behalf if case you become legally incompetent or incapacitated.
  • How do you get Power of Attorney in Tennessee?

    Making a Tennessee 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 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.

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

    Typically, a Tennessee Power of Attorney does not need to be recorded unless it deals with real estate transactions.

  • What does it mean to have Power of Attorney?

    A Power of Attorney grants legal permission for another person or organization to act on your behalf if you're not able to do so. You can choose for your agent's power to begin immediately, on a specific date, or only when you become incapacitated. The powers granted in a Tennessee Power of Attorney can end either on a specific date or upon your death.

    You may designate the Power of Attorney as "general," granting broad powers to control your financial, health, legal, and other matters, or "special," granting power for only specific situations.

    The Tennessee Power of Attorney is specific to the laws of the state of Tennessee and should be created by residents of Tennessee and signed in front of a Tennessee notary public.

  • What are the 4 types of Power of Attorney?

    A General Power of Attorney, Durable Power of Attorney, Special Power of Attorney, and Springing Durable Power of Attorney are the main types of Power of Attorney forms.

    A General Power of Attorney ends when you become incapacitated. Contrastingly, a Durable Power of Attorney contains specific language which maintains your agent's authority even if you are unable to communicate or make decisions for yourself. Unlike a Durable Power of Attorney, a Springing Durable Power of Attorney becomes effective as soon as the document is signed, and only goes into effect once a particular event occurs (e.g. once you become incapacitated).

    A Special Power of Attorney, also known as a Limited Power of Attorney, allows an agent to act only in specific situations.
