Establishing Powers Of Attorney In Missouri

Who would make important financial and health care decisions for you if you were to become incapacitated? The answer to this question does not have to be left to chance or in the hands of a judge. By establishing powers of attorney, you can place those critical decisions in the hands of people you trust.

At Lisha Prater Seery, LLC, we can guide you through the process of establishing powers of attorney and other estate planning documents that protect your assets and wishes. We provide more than 20 years of legal experience to clients in Springfield and southwest Missouri.

General Durable Power Of Attorney

The scope of a general power of attorney can be as broad or narrow as you want it to be. It may be used to give one person the authority to conduct financial transactions, manage bank accounts and investments, sign checks and perform other financial and legal duties.

Springing Power Of Attorney

A springing power of attorney only goes into effect when certain conditions are met — typically the incapacity of the principal (the person for whom the decisions are made.)

Health Care Power Of Attorney

In order to make sure that your wishes are carried out while you are still alive, but not competent, you must have a health care power of attorney. This will allow someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf should you become unable to do so.
