Florida power of attorney allows for a person to select someone else to handle monetary and health care decisions on his or her behalf. The newest law in Florida made every financially related power of attorney document durable which is defined as ‘document being valid after the Principal becomes incapacitated’. This means that the person should be very careful about who to trust as the Agent selected will have all the power to make any type of financial decision even if the Principal is no longer mentally capable of thinking for themselves. All documents must be authorized in front of two (2) witnesses wit no relation to anyone involved in the document or a notary public in order to be valid according to the Florida Power of Attorney Act.
