Making a New Jersey Healthcare Power of Attorney

  • What is a New Jersey Healthcare Power of Attorney?

    A New Jersey 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 health care decisions, so that any confusion about what you want is minimized.

  • How do I get a Power of Attorney in New Jersey?

    Obtaining a Medical Power of Attorney is a fairly straightforward process. In just a few minutes, you can complete a Power of Attorney form online through Rocket Lawyer and decide which powers you want to grant to your agent. You'll need to finalize your document by signing in front of two witnesses, a notary public, or a lawyer.
