Making a Virginia Power of Attorney
A Virginia Power of Attorney makes it possible for you to appoint a friend, family member, or loved one to handle your financial, legal, and medical affairs in the event you are unable to act or make decisions on your own behalf. The person you appoint is called the Agent and you are the Principal. Your Power of Attorney (POA) can start whenever you wish and end on a specific date or upon your death.
