New Mexico Power of Attorney Law

A power of attorney form (POA) is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to insure yourself against an unexpected calamity. If you haven’t made plans for how your rent or other bills will get paid if you suffer an accident or illness, it’s important to not wait until it’s too late. Various types of forms are available to handle matters other than financial ones, such as a medical power of attorney and a childcare POA. It’s also a powerful legal tool for simplifying your life, by allowing you to delegate your authority to an agent when it’s more convenient or efficient to let someone else handle the matter. The agent you name in a POA is also referred to as the attorney-in-fact and you’re called the principal. The New Mexico Statutes contain the Uniform Power of Attorney Act, which lays out the rules and requirements governing this form. Some highlights of these statutes are described below:

Durable power of attorney – This is the type of form you use to insure against an unexpected accident or illness that leaves you disabled or incapacitated. Unlike a nondurable form, a durable one doesn’t automatically become void if you become incapacitated. New Mexico law presumes that your form is durable unless you specifically include terms that state your intent for the form to terminate upon your incapacity. New Mexico Statutes Section 45-5B-104

Signature – Your signature is required on the form, however, another person can sign your name at your request in your presence if you are unable to sign it yourself. It’s recommended to sign it in front of a notary public and have it notarized so that if there’s ever a doubt about your signature’s authenticity, it will be presumed to be genuine. New Mexico Statutes Section 45-5B-105

Springing power of attorney – Your form will take effect as soon as you sign it, unless you state otherwise. You can include terms for it to take effect upon a certain date or occurrence. If you state that it only takes effect upon your incapacity and don’t name a person who’s responsible for determining your incapacity, the law will require a written statement or record of your incapacity from a doctor, attorney, judge, or government official before your agent can act on your behalf. New Mexico Statutes Section 45-5B-109

Multiple agents – You can name more than one agent. If you choose to do this, you should provide instructions for how they exercise their authority. If they serve as co-agents at the same time, you should stat whether they can act independently or must agree on decisions before acting. You can also appoint one of more successor agents to serve after a former agent can no longer serve due to death, incapacity, resignation, or other reason. The successor agent will have the same authority as the agent being replaced, unless you state otherwise. New Mexico Statutes Section 45-5B-111

    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.
