An Alabama general power of attorney allows an individual (referred to as a “principal”) to nominate an representative to handle certain financial responsibilities on their behalf. This is a non-durable power of attorney, meaning it only remains in effect if the principal is capable of making decisions for themselves. A general power of attorney will have an effective date and a termination date. However, the principal may revoke the document at any time by signing a revocation form. A notary public must witness the principal sign a general power of attorney for it to be legally valid.

Laws – Title 26, Chapter 1A (Uniform Power of Attorney Act)

Signing Requirements (§ 26-1A-105) – Notary Public

Durable Power of Attorney – Allows the agent to continue representing the principal even if they become incapacitated.
