Arizona Power of Attorney Forms

Arizona power of attorney forms legally allows a principal to choose an agent (or “surrogate”) to make financial or medical decisions on their behalf. Under certain types of power of attorney, such as durable and medical, if the principal is to become incapacitated the form will remain in place. This means that whoever the principal decides to be the agent, they will have unmitigated rights to act in their presence with no oversight. Therefore, it is highly recommended that the agent be either the spouse, family member, or close friend of the principal.
