Arkansas Power or Attorney

  A power of attorney form (POA) is an important document that allows you to appoint an agent, called an attorney-in-fact, to act in your place when you're ill, disabled, absent, or otherwise unable to act. The laws that give you this authority are found in Title 28 of the Arkansas Code. We'll examine some of the important provisions of the Arkansas Uniform Power of Attorney Act below:

  • A durable power of attorney is one which remains effective even if you later become physically or mentally incapacitated or incompetent. A POA created in Alabama is durable unless it expressly states that it is terminated by the principal's incapacity. Arkansas Code 28-68-104
  • In order to be valid, the document must be signed by the maker, called the principal, while the principal is competent to understand the meaning and consequences of the document and the authority it grants to the named agent(s). While having the document notarized isn't required, a signature that's notarized will be presumed to be genuine if there's ever a dispute about its authenticity. Arkansas Code 28-68-105
  • If you ever become unable to manage your affairs, you can nominate a guardian to manage your personal affairs and property in your power of attorney. Unless a good reason to disqualify the guardian you nominate is proven, the court is required to follow your wishes when a guardianship is created. Arkansas Code 28-68-108
  • The form will take effect when you sign it, unless you state it's only to become effective at a specified or upon a specified future event. You can also require that one or more named people make a written determination that the specified event or contingency has occurred. For example, if you create a springing power of attorney (one which takes effect upon a triggering date or event) that becomes effective when only if you become incapacitated, you can have your doctors attest to your incapacity in writing before the agent is granted authority to act. Arkansas Code 28-68-109
  • You can name more than one agent to act as co-agents or successor agents. Successor agents can prevent the POA from lapsing if an agent dies, resigns, is no longer qualified or declines to serve, or becomes incapacitatede. If you name co-agents that have authority at the same point in time, they will be presumed to be authorized to act independently unless you state that they must agree on all decisions before taking action. Arkansas Code 28-68-111

    General and Statutory Power of AttorneyWhat is a General Power of Attorney?A General Power of Attorney is a legal document which gives the person you choose (the agent) the power to manage your assets and financial affairs while you are alive. The document must be signed by you (the principal) while you have the required legal capacity to give your agent clear and concise instructions. The appointment may be for a fixed period and can be revoked by you at any time providing you still have the legal capacity to do so. A power of attorney ceases when you die. The executor named in your will then takes over the responsibilities of your estate.

    Living Will and Health Care Power of AttorneyLiving Will and Health Care Power of AttorneyA Health Care Power of Attorney is a legal document that allows an individual to designate another person to make medical decisions for him or her when he or she cannot make decisions for himself or herself. In other words it names someone who stands in your shoes and tells the doctors what to do or what not do for you.

    A Living Will is a document that allows a person to explain in writing which medical treatment he or she does or does not want during a terminal illness. A terminal illness is a fatal illness that leads ultimately to death. A Living Will takes effect only when the patient is incapacitated and can no longer express his or her wishes. The will states which medical treatments may be used and which may not be used to die naturally and without the patient�s life being artificially prolonged by various medical procedures. Although the term Living Will may indicate that it is a Will, in reality, it is more similar to a Power of Attorney than a Will.
