Power of Attorney
With a power of attorney, one person (called the "principal") gives another person (a fiduciary called an "agent") the right to manage the property of principal -- for the benefit of the principal. The agent has only those rights and authority granted by the principal, and the authority can be immediately effective or effective only upon incapacity of the principal. Most financial abuse occurs with agents operating under a power of attorney document.
