Creating a Power of Attorney in Georgia
Skilled Marietta Estate Planning Lawyer
The documents for power of attorney are designed to provide some comfort for those who are planning their estates. In the event that you become incapacitated or are no longer able to care for yourself, you are able to distinguish someone you trust to take care of your finances. This person can see to it that your affairs are properly handled and that necessary bills are paid on your behalf.
An experienced and compassionate estate planning lawyer in Marietta can help ensure that your power of attorney is properly granted to the person you need in charge of your affairs. The Farrell Law Firm can guide you through the process of establishing the power of attorney and other estate planning documents.

Types of Power of Attorney Documents
There is a range of situations in which a power of attorney can be granted:
Advanced directives (medical power of attorney) – Appointing someone to make decisions about your health care if you are unable to do so. The individual will be in charge of deciding medical care for you, including withholding or authorizing treatment for artificial nutrition or feeding tubes in situations involving end-of-life care,
Financial power of attorney – This grants full authority of your finances to a family member or friend. The agent can handle bank transactions on your behalf, buy/sell property, enter into contracts, file your tax returns, and other financial transactions.
