Powers of Attorney Archives

Are powers of attorney applicable after death?

A power of attorney makes important financial and medical decisions on a person's behalf when serious illness or injury is present. However, when that person dies their power of attorney is no longer valid, meaning the person appointed is no longer capable of making such decisions. The Balance explains how estates are handled after a person is deceased. 

How do you revoke power of attorney?

Reaching the point of incapacity is something that you may need to contemplate as part of your estate planning. If and when that happens, who is to make important decisions in your stead (particularly involving your medical care)? Empowering a family member or friend in Providence with durable power of attorney eliminates the issue of who will act on your behalf in regard to your health care. There may even be scenarios where you might want to grant another with this authority even if you are not completely incapacitated. Yet simply giving one power of attorney privileges does not necessarily mean that all of their decisions may be in your best interest. 

What is an advance directive?

If you are like most people in Rhode Island, someone you know or are related to may have been diagnosed with a serious, terminal illness. One of the things that this experience often leads people to do is to talk more candidly with their family members about what type of medical care they do or do not want to experience or undergo. However, it is not necessary, nor is it recommended for people to wait until these moments to have such conversations and make such decisions.

What is a childcare power of attorney?

As a parent, you would do anything for your children. But sometimes, even the most devoted parents must spend time away from their children for extended periods of time. Whether you are in the military, you share custody with your partner or you must travel for work, you sometimes have to spent time away from your children.
