An Ohio durable power of attorney grants legal rights to an agent through which they can control another’s finances. Assigning authority in such a manner ensures that one’s financial transactions are managed while away for extended periods and even during medical emergencies where the principal (the person granting power) is incapacitated; unlike a general power of attorney, a “durable” power of attorney document will not be affected by incapacitation. To put the form into effect, the principal must appear before a notary public and acknowledge the validity of their signature.
