A Hawaii limited power of attorney is a legal document that lets someone (the principal) grant another person (the agent) permission to carry out specific functions on their behalf. This power of attorney form limits the agent’s authority to a specific set of responsibilities. For example, an agent might be required to pay the principal’s bills, cash checks, or withdraw funds from their bank account. The form then terminates when the tasks are complete or upon the designated expiration date. Unlike a durable power of attorney, this document revokes automatically if the principal dies or loses their mental competency.
