Missouri Power of Attorney Law

The laws that permit you to use a power of attorney (POA) to appoint an agent are contained in Chapter 404 of the Missouri Statutes. By appointing a trusted person as your agent, you delegate your authority to them to handle matters you canít attend to personally. This may be due to absence, illness, military service, physical or mental incapacity, or other reasons. Sometimes itís simply more efficient or convenient to have someone else handle it. If you have an accident or illness that prevents you from being able to handle your affairs, this form can prevent having to petition the court to create a guardianship, which involves significant costs and delay.

Below are some of the important facts about the law in your state that you should be aware of:

  • Durable power of attorney Ė A durable form is one that isnít voided when you become wholly or partially disabled or incapacitated, or in the event of later doubt as to whether youíre dead or alive. A nondurable form will automatically be voided, and your agentís authority will be terminated in such circumstances. In order to create a durable POA form, Missouri Statutes set forth the following requirements:

  1. The form must be titled as a durable POA.
  2. Particular wording needs to state your intention that the authority granted to your agent will continue and not be voided by your future disability, incapacity, or uncertainty regarding whether youíre alive or dead.
  3. You, the principal, must sign and date the form in front of a notary and have it notarized.
  4. You donít have to file the form in the public records of the local recorderís office unless itís required as part of a real estate transaction. Missouri Statutes Section 404.705

  • General power of attorney Ė A general POA gives your agent wide authority in many matters, and only a very trusted person should be named as your agent in this type of form. Itís often used to protect yourself from needing to have the court appoint a guardian for you if you have an unexpected event like an accident or illness occur. This allows your personal and business affairs to continue uninterrupted, avoiding late and unpaid bills, even possible foreclosure, damage to your credit history, and other negative consequences.

You can also create a special power of attorney form, also called a limited POA, that grants the agent a narrower scope of authority. You might create this type of form when you need a particular transaction handled, such as banking matters, a vehicle or home sale or purchase, a stock transfer, etc.

    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 patientÔŅĹs 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.
