Kansas Power of Attorney Law

A Kansas power of attorney (POA) is an essential legal document to have when an unexpected life event occurs, such as an accident or illness, which prevents you from handling important affairs. It may also be used when you’re out of town, unavailable, or simply find it more convenient to have something handled by another. By filling out this simple form, you, called the principal, can name an agent, called the attorney in fact, to have authority in whatever matters you specify. You can grant broad authority to a trusted agent in a general power of attorney, or use a special power of attorney, also called a limited POA, to grant narrower authority in particular matters only.

This ability to use a POA form and avoid the guardianship process is created in Chapter 58 of the Kansas Statutes. We’ll highlight some of the more important points to know about the law below:

  • Durable power of attorney form – Your form can be durable, meaning your agent’s authority stays in effect even after you become fully or partially disabled, or in the event of later uncertainty as to whether you’re dead or alive. In order to qualify as a durable POA, it needs to be titled as one and contain certain wording that shows you intend for it to stay in effect despite your disability or doubt about your death. Kansas Statutes Section 58-652
  • Signature – You must sign and date the form in front of a notary public and have it notarized. Kansas Statutes Section 58-652
  • Recording – You may record the form at the county recorder’s office, but are not required to do so. If you do choose to record it at the recorder’s office, any later revocation of the form must also be recorded there in order to be effective. Kansas Statutes Section 58-652
  • Multiple agents – You can name more than one agent. If you do so, you should state whether they may act independently, or must agree on decisions and act jointly. If you don’t specify how they must make decisions, the law will presume that they must act jointly and agree on all matters before taking action. Kansas Statutes Section 58-653
  • Medical power of attorney – You can give your agent authority to make medical treatment and life support decisions for you when you’re disabled or incapacitated and can’t express your wishes. Kansas Statutes provide a statutory health care power of attorney form that can be used when you only want to name an agent with authority in health care matters. Kansas Statutes Sections 58-625 through 58-632

    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.
