New Hampshire power of attorney forms are documents that allow an agent to act in place of a principal and make decisions on their behalf. Extensive financial powers can be authorized through both a durable and non-durable power of attorney while specific financial responsibilities are best designated in a limited power of attorney. Any document deemed “durable” shall remain valid while the principal is incapacitated. If the principal requires a health care agent to oversee their end-of-life treatment, they will draft an advance directive to elect the agent and detail their medical preferences.
By Type (8)
Advance Directive – Informs health care professionals about the type of life-sustaining procedures that should be administered when the principal is unable to make competent decisions. This package contains both a medical power of attorney and a living will.
Durable Power of Attorney – Allows a representative to make financial decisions on behalf of the principal. The power of attorney will not be affected by the mental incapacitation of the principal.
General (non-durable) Power of Attorney – Empowers an agent with financial rights that cease to be effective once the principal becomes incapacitated.
Limited Power of Attorney – Authorizes the performance of specific financial transactions by an agent. After the transactions are complete, or once an expiration date is met, the power of attorney will be terminated.
