A Michigan limited power of attorney is a document that an individual referred to therein as the principal will fill out to assign power to a trusted representative (an “agent”) to complete a specific task or set of tasks for them. The agent will not have the authority to act or make decisions on behalf of the principal in any way other than that which is clearly defined in the limited power of attorney document. Unlike a durable power of attorney, the agent won’t be able to continue to act for the principal if the principal becomes mentally or physically incapacitated.
