A Florida durable power of attorney form represents a way in which an individual, or principal, can have someone act for them with regard to their finances and other areas of life. The durable type of POA stays in effect even if the principal ends up in a situation where he or she cannot think, communicate, or act.
What is the difference between power of attorney and durable power of attorney in Florida?
A power of attorney ends if the person it represents becomes incapacitated. That’s when a special kind of power of attorney, known as a durable power of attorney, is more appropriate, because it remains intact, or “durable,” even if a person suffers mental incapacity in the future.
