Nebraska power of attorney forms allow a principal to choose an agent who may act on their behalf and make decisions affecting finances, health care, property, and minor children. Delegating authority in such a manner ensures that one’s interests are maintained and cared for by a trusted representative. Under a durable power of attorney, be it financial or medical, the agent’s rights will be unaffected by the incapacity of the principal. All non-durable power of attorney forms will either be restricted in duration or employed for a specific purpose such as buying real estate or filing taxes.
