A Missouri Durable Power of Attorney is a custom Durable Power of Attorney document which is created based upon current Missouri law and the specific information you provide in your request. Included with the document is a detailed set of instructions and information on properly signing the document.
The Missouri Durable Power of Attorney Law (Chapter 404.700-404.737 and 404.800-404.872 of the Missouri Revised Statutes) allows any competent adult individual the ability to create a document known as a Durable Power of Attorney with the primary focus of assisting in the management of such individual's affairs should he or she become incapacitated or disabled in the future.
The individual creating the Durable Power of Attorney is known as the Principal and the person appointed as the legal representative of the Principal in such document is known as the Attorney in Fact. In such document the Attorney in Fact is granted legal authority to manage the financial or health care affairs of the Principal should the Principal become incapacitated or disabled. By creating such document an individual may avoid costly and time consuming court proceedings known as guardianship and conservatorship.
