Florida Power of Attorney Law


The ability to create a power of attorney form (POA) is governed by Chapter 709 of the Florida Statutes. This is an essential legal document used to appoint an agent who can handle your affairs when you’re unable to do so. It needs to be created while you still have the mental and physical competency to understand it meaning and consequences. If you wait until it too late to fill one out, someone may have to petition the court for guardianship over you, which involves significant time and expense. Let’s examine some of the important facts to know about appointing an agent in a POA form:

  • Durable power of attorney - The type of form will not terminate when you are incapacitated through a physical or mental disability. In order to create a valid durable power of attorney form, it must contain a statement that shows an intent to stay valid despite the principal’s incapacity or disability. Florida Statutes 709.2104
 
  • Signatures – You must sign the document or instruct another person to sign your name in your presence if you are unable to. Two witnesses must also sign the form. All of you must sign before a notary public, who then notarizes the form. Florida Statutes 709.2105
 
  • Agent – Your agent must be a person who is at least 18 years old or a financial institution that has trust powers, has a place of business located in Florida, and is authorized to conduct trust business in Florida. Florida Statutes 709.2105
 
  • Effective date – Your power of attorney form takes effect when you sign it, unless you state that you don’t want it to be effective until a specified date or contingency occurs. If you state that it’s only effective upon your incapacity, the form was signed before October 1, 2011 and the incapacity arose after that date, a physician must sign an affidavit attesting to your incapacity. Florida Statutes 709.2108
 
  • Co-agents and successor agents – You may name more than one agent as co-agents. The law will presume they may act independently, unless you state that they must agree on decisions and act jointly. You may also name one or more successor agents to take over if a prior agent resigns, dies, becomes incapacitated, is no longer qualified to serve, or has declined to serve. Florida Statutes 709.2111
 
  • Revocation You may revoke a power or attorney form at any time by a signed writing or by a statement in a new POA form. A copy of the revocation should be provided to the agent. Florida Statutes 709.2110

    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.
