Nevada power of attorney forms assign rights to a representative (a.k.a. “agent” or “attorney-in-fact”) allowing them to act on behalf of a principal. To authorize comprehensive powers for financial transactions, the principal can execute a general power of attorney (if the form is durable, it remains in effect during the principal’s incapacity). To assign a health care agent and provide medical instructions, a principal may draft an advance directive, living will, or medical power of attorney.
By Type (10)
Advance Directive – States the health care preferences and life-sustaining treatments to be administered on a principal when mentally incapacitated. Note that this document contains both a living will and a medical power of attorney.
Durable Power of Attorney – Allows an individual to select a representative to make financial decisions on their behalf. The powers granted through the power of attorney will not be affected by the incapacity of the principal.
General (non-durable) Power of Attorney – Allows an agent to make financial decisions for a principal for a duration that expires upon the principal’s incapacity.
Limited Power of Attorney – This power of attorney provides a limited scope of authority and terminates after the agent fulfills their appointed duties or once a specific end date is reached.
Living Will – Indicates the medical actions that should be implemented when the principal is unable to communicate due to incapacity.
Medical Power of Attorney – Appoints a health care proxy to represent the principal and make medical decisions on their behalf.
