Why You Need A Power Of Attorney
Many individuals are unaware that in the absence of a valid power of attorney, financial, business and medical decisions cannot be effectuated with any certainty. Although your spouse or children may make such decisions when you are unable, a power of attorney ensures your wishes are respected, and grants access to all information and accounts necessary to do so.
A power of attorney allows your designated agent access to any information, accounts, assets, business agreements, etc., in order to act on your behalf. The agent would pay your bills and consult with your creditors as necessary. In short, while you are incapacitated, your agent will have all powers that you have when you are healthy.
In addition to a general power of attorney, Mr. Martin drafts medical powers of attorney that allow your agent to make decisions regarding your medical treatment and care. Mr. Martin can provide a medical power of attorney tailored to the Catholic faith.
