New Hampshire Power of Attorney Law

A power of attorney form is a valuable tool that allows the creator, called the principal, to name an agent to act in the principalís place, according to the powers described in the document. As the principal, you can give your agent broad, general powers or limit them in any way you desire. The ability to make a power of attorney can save you significant costs and time, especially when an unexpected event prevents you from doing something. Without one, itís often necessary to petition the court to appoint a guardian. This is an expensive and time-consuming process that could be avoided by filling out a simple form.

A power of attorney can also be used to just make your life easier by delegating your authority to someone else. You may want another to handle something for you when youíre out of town, in military service, ill, too busy, etc. Below are some of the important concepts contained in the New Hampshire Statutes that you should be aware of:

  • Durable power of attorney Ė A durable POA form is more lasting than a nondurable one because it stays valid even if you later become disabled or incompetent. For example, if you develop dementia from Alzheimerís disease or are unconscious in the hospital, a nondurable form will automatically be voided, Your agent will lose the power to act for you and a guardian will need to be appointed by the court.

  • In order to create a durable POA, the form must include wording that shows you intend it to remain effective despite your later disability or incompetency. It must also include a disclosure notice that is provided in the New Hampshire Statutes. The agent must also sign an acknowledgment statement in order to have valid power to act on your behalf. New Hampshire Statutes Section 506:6

    • Signature - Your POA form must be signed while you are mentally competent to understand its terms and legal consequences. It must be signed in front of a notary public and notarized if it grants the agent the power to convey real estate or if itís a durable document. New Hampshire Statutes Section 477:9, New Hampshire Statutes Section 506:6

    • Gifts Ė New Hampshire Statutes contain restrictions on your agentís ability to make gifts to himself or herself and others. The power to make gifts needs to be specifically described in the document. The gift also canít leave you without sufficient assets or income to care for yourself without relying on government assistance programs. New Hampshire Statutes Section 506:6, New Hampshire Statutes Section 506:7

      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.
