An Illinois limited power of attorney is a legal document that lets individuals choose someone else to manage specific aspects of their affairs. The person creating the form (the “principal”) must nominate a representative (the “agent” or “attorney-in-fact”) and assign them specific tasks and responsibilities. Unlike other power of attorney forms, this document limits the agent’s scope of authority and, in some instances, imposes a timeframe in which the agent must complete their assignments. The document will then terminate after the agent performs their tasks or when the timeframe expires. If the principal dies or becomes incapacitated, the agent’s authority is automatically revoked.
