This Missouri Durable Power of Attorney website has been created to afford you with a simple and affordable method to create a Durable Power of Attorney for Personal Financial Decisions, a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care Decisions and a Living Will/Health Care Declaration.
The Missouri Durable Power of Attorney Law (Chapter 404.700 - 404.735 and Chapter 404.800 - 404.865 of the Missouri Revised Statutes) allows any competent individual to create and sign a document known as a Durable Power of Attorney and thereby avoid the legal proceedings of guardianship and conservatorship in the event of incapacitation or disability.
The individual creating the document is known as the Principal and the individual appointed as the Principal's legal representative is known as the Attorney in Fact. The Attorney in Fact is granted legal authority to manage the financial and health care affairs of the Principal in the event the Principal becomes incapacitated or disabled, thereby avoiding costly guardianship and conservatorship proceedings.
