Oregon Power of Attorney Law


A power of attorney form (POA) is one of the easiest and least expensive financial and estate planning tools available to you. It can be used to make your life easier when you need or prefer to have something handled by someone else. It can also avoid major headaches, having to establish a guardianship, and loss of time and money if an unfortunate event or illness strikes you. By filling out this form, you create an agency relationship between yourself, the principal, and the person(s) you name as your agent(s). An agent is also called an attorney-in-fact. An agent will have the authority you describe to act in your place, which can be very broad authority, or limited to a particular transaction and/or time period.

The Oregon Statutes contain rules and requirements for using a power of attorney. Some of the important features of these laws are described below:

  • Signature – You must sign the form, or if you’re unable to, instruct someone else to sign your name. It should be signed in front of a notary public and notarized in order to avoid challenges to the authenticity of your signature. It must be notarized if your agent will be using it to transfer, rent, or mortgage real property. Oregon Statutes Section 93.010
 
  • Competency – The key to creating a valid power of attorney is to sign it while you’re mentally competent to do so. You must be of sound mind and have the ability to receive and evaluate information and communicate decisions effectively. If you wait until you’re sedated or unconscious in the hospital, or suffering from dementia from Alzheimer’s disease, it will be too late. Oregon Statutes 125.005, Oregon Statutes 127.510
 
  • Medical power of attorney – This type of POA form is referred to as an advance health directive under Oregon Statutes. You can create this document to appoint another adult as your attorney-in-fact for making health care decisions when you’re unable to do so for yourself. You can provide instructions for your medical treatment and life support preferences for your health care agent to follow. A statutory form is contained in the Oregon Statutes, which is optional. By using a statutory form, you’re using one that precisely copies the language in these statutes. Oregon Statutes 127.505 et seq.
 
  • Temporary guardianship – Oregon Statutes also allow you to create a power of attorney for childcare or care of an incapacitated person for up to six months. This form will allow the agent to have all the powers for the care, custody, and property of the child or ward except the power to consent to the marriage or adoption of a minor child. Oregon Statutes 109.056

    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.
