New Jersey Power of Attorney Law


When you can’t effectively act for yourself, a power of attorney form (POA) is a valuable legal tool that ‘s easy and inexpensive to make. New Jersey Statutes allow you to use this form to create an agency relationship, in which you are the principal and you name an agent (also called an attorney-in-fact). In the form, you name your agent and describe the authority to act on your behalf that you want your agent to have. Your can delegate broad, general authority or limit the powers granted to only certain transactions. This form can be very handy when you’re out-of-town, ill, injured, in military service, incarcerated, or simply too busy to handle a matter personally. It can also spare you the time and expense of having the court create a guardianship over you if you’re physically or mentally incapacitated for an extended period of time.

  • Durable power of attorney – A durable instead of a nondurable POA form won’t become invalid automatically due to passage of time, or if you’re stricken with a mental or physical disability. For example, by creating a durable form, your agent can continue to act if a major illness or accident occurs, avoiding the need to have a guardian appointed by the court. To qualify as a durable form, New Jersey statutes require the form to contain certain wording that shows your intent to have it remain effective despite the passage of time or your disability or incapacity. New Jersey Statutes 46:2B-8.2
 
  • Revocation – You can void the form whenever you like, as long as you’re still mentally competent to understand the consequences of revoking it and do so under your own free will. In order to void your agent’s powers, the agent and those dealing with the agent must have actual knowledge of the revocation. Therefore, they should be given a signed, dated, and notarized copy of a written revocation form. New Jersey Statutes 46:2B-8.5, New Jersey Statutes 46:2B-8.10
 
  • Multiple agents – You may name more than one agent that serve at the same time. If you do, you should state how they must make decisions before taking action. If you don’t describe their authority to make decisions, the law will presume they all must fully agree before acting. You can also name successor agents to serve in the place of another agent who’s died, resigned, become incapacitated, or is otherwise unable to serve. New Jersey Statutes 46:2B-8.7

    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 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.
