An Arkansas limited power of attorney is a document that assigns authority to an agent, or “attorney-in-fact,” to execute specific tasks on behalf of the person creating the document. With this limited form, the document’s creator, the “principal,” outlines the agent’s duties and decision-making capabilities. The powers assigned through the form shall either terminate on a predetermined calendar date or immediately after the agent fulfills their tasks. Limited power of attorney forms are non-durable; therefore, the agent’s authority is automatically revoked upon the principal’s incapacitation or death.
