Texas Power of Attorney Law
A power of attorney form (POA) is one of the easiest and most important legal documents you can create. Through this form, you appoint an agent to handle matters for you, according to the authority you choose to give. Not only can it simplify your life, it can save you a good deal of time and money. If you become unable to make decisions clearly or sign papers, your agent can act to make sure your important personal and business matters arenít neglected. This can possibly save you from foreclosure, harm to your business, and damage to your credit, among other things. Depending on the type of form you create, your agent can also prevent the need to appoint a guardian through the court, which will save you thousands of dollars and much troublesome delay.
The Estates Code in the Texas Code provides rules governing your POA. Letís take a look at some of the important things you should know about these laws below:
- Durable power of attorney Ė This type of POA can avoid the need for asking the court to appoint a guardian if youíre mentally or physically incapacitated. For example, if you donít have an agent and have an unexpected accident or illness, or develop dementia, and canít attend to personal and financial affairs, someone will need to go through the guardianship process in court to have one appointed. A nondurable form will automatically become void and your agent can no longer act for you if you become unable to think, act, or communicate clearly. To create a durable form, it must include wording that states your intent for it to continue after your disability or incapacity. Texas Code Section 751.002 EST. CODE
- Agentís authority Ė You can create a general power of attorney that gives your agent wide authority to handle whatever might be needed when unplanned or unexpected events occur. You can also create a limited or special POA to have the agent just deal with a particular transaction or action. Youíre able to revoke your agentís authority at any time by giving the agent a written revocation form, and sending a copy of the revocation to those the agentís been dealing with for you. If your agent is your spouse, unless you state otherwise in the form, the spouseís authority as your agent will terminate upon divorce or annulment of your marriage. Your death will also automatically terminate your agentís authority. Texas Code Section 751.001 EST. CODE et seq.
- Statutory durable power of attorney Ė The Texas Code contains an optional form you may use. When you use a statutory form, it means that it carefully copies the wording provided in the state statute. You can fill out the form by selecting the options provided for the powers your want the agent to have, and whether you want to create a durable or nondurable POA. Texas Code Section 752.001 EST. CODE et seq.

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.
