Tennessee Power of Attorney Law


Have you thought about who will pay your rent and other bills if something happens, such as an accident or illness, that prevents you from taking care of it yourself? If not, then it’s time to create a power of attorney form (POA). This simple form can save you valuable time and money by avoiding the hassle of establishing a guardianship through the court. It allows you, the principal, to name an agent and give the agent authority in the matters you describe. If you’re incapacitated and can’t make effective decisions or knowingly sign papers, your agent can take the necessary action for you, and a guardian isn’t necessary.

You can also create a limited, also called a special, power of attorney to give your agent authority to just handle a particular transaction. This can be very useful when you want a sale, banking matter, or other action handled for you because you’re unavailable. You may be too busy, out of town, in the military service, ill, injured, incarcerated, or simply prefer to delegate the matter to another.

The Tennessee Code contains laws and rules that govern your POA form. You can use this form in a variety of ways. Special powers can be granted to the agent for making health care decisions on your behalf. You can also use this form to create a temporary guardianship, and give your agent power to care for your minor child. We’ll describe some of the important laws below:

  • Durable power of attorney – The form needs to be durable if you want your agent to be able to act for your even when you’re incapacitated and can’t effectively make decisions or act for yourself. A nondurable form will automatically expire once you can’t think and communicate clearly. In order to create a durable form, it must contain statements that show your intent for the form to stay in effect if you become disabled or incapacitated mentally or physically after signing it. Tennessee Code Section 34-6-102
 
  • Medical power of attorney – If you’re incapacitated with an illness or injury, you can appoint a health care agent to make medical treatment and life support decisions on your behalf. You can describe your preferences in order to provide guidance for your agent to follow. There are specific requirements for creating this form, such as having it notarized, or having two qualified witnesses sign an attestation clause when you sign and date it. Tennessee Code Section 34-6-203
 
  • Childcare power of attorney – If a hardship prevents parents from caring for a minor child, they can appoint another adult who resides in Tennessee as a temporary guardian. This agent will have the authority to care for the child and handle the child’s education and health care in the same manner that the parent would. Tennessee Code Section 34-6-301 et seq.

    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.
