Colorado Power of Attorney Law


The Colorado Revised Statutes allow you to make a power of attorney (POA) that names another, called the agent, attorney-in-fact, or personal representative, authority to act on your behalf. As the maker of the document, you’re called the principal or grantor. When you can’t handle a matter personally, due to absence, illness, disability, military service, or other reason, this document is a valuable legal tool. It can also save much expense and time if a guardianship needs to be created because didn’t appoint an agent before becoming physically or mentally incapacitated. We’ll explain some key provisions of the law below:   
  • When you create a durable power of attorney, it stays effective and won’t automatically lapse if you later become incapacitated. Colorado laws assumes that your form is a durable POA, unless you specifically state that it will be terminated by your incapacity. Colorado Revised Statutes Section 15-14-704
 
  • If you sign the document in front of a notary public and have it notarized, your signature will be legally presumed to be authentic if its authenticity is ever questioned. If you’re unable to sign your name, you can instruct another person to sign your name in your presence. Colorado Revised Statutes Section 15-14-705
 
  • If a guardianship or conservatorship becomes necessary, you can use your power of attorney to name a preferred guardian or conservator. The court will typically appoint this named person, unless good cause to disqualify him or her is proven. Colorado Revised Statutes Section 15-14-708
 
  • You can revoke your power of attorney at any time or state a certain date or contingencies upon which it will terminate. A POA will terminate automatically if:
 
  1. The principal dies.
  2. The agent dies, resigns, declines to act, or becomes incapacitated, and no successor is named.
  3. The principal and agent are married and an action for divorce, annulment, or legal separation is filed, unless the POA states otherwise.
  4. The stated purpose of the document has been accomplished.
  5. The principal becomes incapacitated and the form is a nondurable power of attorney. Colorado Revised Statutes Section 15-14-710
 
  • A POA takes effect upon signing, unless you state that it only takes effect if a certain event, date or contingency occurs. This is called a springing power of attorney. For example, you may wish to only grant authority to your agent in the event that you become incapacitated. Colorado Revised Statutes Section 15-14-709

    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.
