Alaska Power of Attorney Forms | Requirements & Statutes

Alaska power of attorney forms allows an individual (“principal”) to select someone else (“agent”) to handle health care and financial related decisions on their own. This is most common in “durable” situations where the principal is not able to think for themselves due to mental deficiencies. The form must be signed in the presence of a notary public or two (2) witnesses. Afterward, the agent may begin to act on the principal’s behalf.
