Why you need a power of attorney (POA)

To speak for you when you can’t

If you're unable to handle your financial affairs for whatever reason, a POA allows you to designate someone you trust to help ensure your wishes are followed.

For your friends and family

Allow your loved ones to take care of your finances without having to deal with court proceedings.

For your peace of mind

Living overseas for an extended period of time, or getting sick can already be a challenge. Ease your mind by knowing that your assets and finances will be taken care of by someone you trust.

Why we’re different

Convenient

Create and complete your power of attorney from the comfort of your own home.

Accessible legal advice

Rely on guidance from highly-rated lawyers that you can choose from our vetted network.

Fast and easy

With our simple questionnaire, many of our customers finished their POA in under 15 minutes.

Here’s how it works

  1. Our questionnaire lets you choose a person you trust to be your agent, so you can give them the authority to make select decisions on your behalf.
  2. We'll use your answers to create your POA, which you can review in your account.
  3. Print and complete using our instructions, or schedule time with a lawyer to do a final review with you over the phone.

Frequently asked questions

  1. You can choose to have it take effect immediately. Or it can be a "springing" power of attorney that kicks in only if you become incapacitated.
  2. Yes, you can revoke it whenever you want, as long as you're mentally capable.
  3. Generally, you can permit your agent to make all your financial decisions. Or you can limit their powers to certain ones.
  4. Yes, and most states recognize powers of attorney signed in other states. But it may be a good idea to get a new one when you move.
  5. A power of attorney lets your agent do any or all of these tasks:
    • Pay for support and care
    • Borrow money
    • Conduct banking transactions
    • Manage property
    • Handle legal claims
    • Access safe deposit boxes
    • Deal with insurance and retirement benefits
    • Exercise stockholder rights
    • Contract for services
    • Make gifts
    • Collect social security benefits

Meet our customers

I had to secure a POA due to a family member's hospital stay. I had it in less than 24 hours. I didn't just get a POA. I got instructions, information regarding my POA, and a revocation, which I wasn't expecting. That was a pleasant surprise. Great service.

Power of attorney customer
I had doubts initially about acquiring my power of attorney online, but after printing it out, getting it notarized, and recording it at my home county's recorders registry without a single hitch, I am now a firm believer of LegalZoom. What I thought would be a complicated process was actually easy to execute and navigate with clear and concise instructions.

Angela D.

Power of attorney customer
Our family needed a power of attorney document on short notice and LegalZoom was able to deliver. They even expedited it so that we could make our only available time slot for all family members to be present, and before the bank closed.
