Michigan Power of Attorney Law

Your right to make a power of attorney (POA) to appoint an agent to handle your personal and/or business affairs is contained in Chapter 700 of the Michigan Complied Laws. There are many reasons you may want to delegate authority to an agent. You may be unable to handle something personally due to being ill, suffering from a disabling accident, out of town, in the military, or other reason. Sometimes, it’s just more convenient or efficient to have a matter handled by another. Other times, it’s necessary to have an agent named to avoid a lengthy and costly guardianship appointment process.

Before filling out a form for power of attorney, you should familiarize yourself with some of the important concepts covered under the laws of your state:

  • Durable power of attorney form- Unlike a nondurable form, this type of POA will stay in effect even if you later become disabled or incapacitated. In order for your incapacity to not void the form and terminate your agent’s authority, you must include the appropriate wording. Michigan Complied Laws Section 700.5501

  • Requirements – To create a valid document, there are specific requirements that must be met:

  1. You must date and sign the form, or have a notary sign your name in your presence.
  2. Two witnesses must witness your signature and sign the form. Neither of the witnesses may be named as the agent.
  3. You and your witnesses must sign in front of a notary public and have the form notarized.
  4. The agent, also called the attorney in fact, must sign an acknowledgment of the attorney-in-fact's responsibilities that contains certain statements provided in the statutes. Michigan Complied Laws Section 700.5501

  • Patient advocate – You can create a medical power of attorney, in which you name a patient advocate who has authority to make medical treatment and life support decisions when you’re unable to express your wishes. However, you can give your patient advocate written instructions regarding your wishes when you create the form. Your patient advocate will then be able to sign forms and withhold or give medical consent according to your wishes. Without a health care power of attorney appointment, a guardianship often needs to be created, at significant cost and delay. Michigan Complied Laws Section 700.5506 at seq.

    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.
