A Delaware general power of attorney is used to give an agent the ability to act on behalf of an individual regarding their finances. This document will become void if the principal becomes incapacitated in any way, which differntiatites it from the durable power of attorney form (see below). The completed form is not valid unless acknowledged before a notary public and one (1) adult witness who is present when the principal signs. The principal may revoke this power of attorney at any time.
Laws – Title 12: Chapter 49 (Durable Powers of Attorney) and Chapter 49A (Durable Personal Powers of Attorney Act)
Signing Requirements (§ 49A-105) – Notary Public and One (1) Witness
Durable Power of Attorney – This power of attorney is not terminated in the event that the principal becomes incapacitated.
