Making a Florida Healthcare Power of Attorney

  • What is a Florida Healthcare Power of Attorney?

    A Florida Healthcare Power of Attorney can ensure that someone you trust can make medical decisions for you if you become incapacitated. With this document in place, all of your loved ones can rest assured that the person you've personally selected is in charge of your healthcare decisions, so that any confusion about what you want is minimized.

  • How do I get a Medical Power of Attorney in Florida?

    The Rocket Lawyer document builder can create a customized Florida Healthcare Power of Attorney just for you. Make sure your state (Florida) is chosen from the drop-down menu, click on the Make Document button, and answer some questions. The person you choose to make healthcare decisions on your behalf is called your "surrogate." You may want to review the following questions before you start your document:

    • Who will be your surrogate and alternate surrogate?
    • Can your surrogate direct the withdrawal and withholding of artificially provided food and fluids?
    • What limitations would you like to place on your surrogate's authority?
    • Who will be the first and second witness?

    If you're not able to finish your document in one sitting, you can save it and come back later to complete it.

  • How do you do a Medical Power of Attorney?

    A Medical Power of Attorney, also called a Healthcare Power of Attorney or Designation of Health Care Surrogate in the state of Florida, is the legal document used to appoint a healthcare surrogate to make medical decisions on your behalf if you are unable to make those decisions yourself. You can create a Medical Power of Attorney by using the Rocket Lawyer document builder to make a customized Healthcare Power of Attorney just for you.

  • What does a Durable Power of Attorney mean in Florida?

    A General Power of Attorney ends when you become incapacitated. On the other hand, 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.

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

    A Power of Attorney does not need to be recorded in Florida to be valid.
