Nevada Power of Attorney Forms

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.
