British Columbia has two types of powers of attorney: a general power of attorney and an enduring power of attorney.
You must be 19 years of age or older to create a power of attorney. You can create a power of attorney for one transaction, for a specific amount of time or even for someone to handle all of your financial decisions. You have the option of naming several individuals who can assist you. A power of attorney ends when you die or if you enter bankruptcy.
There is an important distinction to be made regarding power of attorney: it is set up and is used only for purposes of making legal or financial decisions, not health-related ones. Even an enduring power of attorney cannot make health care decisions for you. A representation agreement is required for that.
Stop putting it off. Darnell Law Group will draft a will for you that ensures your intentions are clearly set out.
