Arkansas power of attorney forms allow a person to appoint someone else to handle financial, medical, and other important responsibilities. Giving someone power of attorney means handing over a lot of authority and influence to another person. The principal (person executing the power of attorney form) would be wise to select an individual they trust completely, such as a spouse, relative, or close friend. The documents provided on this page serve many different purposes and will also have various execution requirements and obligations.
