A Connecticut limited power of attorney is a form used to appoint an agent to act on behalf of a principal and represent them in specific scenarios. The powers granted to the agent, or “attorney-in-fact,” are often temporary and expire on a pre-determined date. Alternatively, the principal can choose to have the power of attorney terminate immediately after the agent’s assignments are complete.
The limited authority can be useful during extended periods of the principal’s absence, as it enables the agent to ensure their personal and financial matters are managed until their return. Should the principal lose their ability to make decisions due to incapacity or death, the agent will become automatically absolved of their responsibilities.
