Delaware Durable Power of Attorney Form

The Delaware durable power of attorney grants specific powers to an entrusted agent with regard to a principal’s financial matters. The principal should appoint an agent (or “attorney-in-fact”) that they trust completely, such as a relative, close friend, or business partner. The durable power of attorney allows the principal to transfer all financial matters to their agent or a select few that they would like them to handle. This document remains valid until the principal’s death (unless they choose to terminate it), even in the event of their incapacitation.
