Summary
" ... contains basic information on durable powers of attorney (DPAs) and discusses many aspects of their creation and use for disability planning. It provides a definition of the DPA and analyzes its development and evolution. Additionally, an overview of the Uniform Power of Attorney Act ("UPOAA"), promulgated in 2006 by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws, is presented throughout the portfolio. The analysis includes an examination of the agent-principal relationship and provides a comparison of DPAs to revocable living trusts. Issues discussed in depth include legal capacity, selection of an agent, deterring abuse of the DPA, relationships of agent to guardian or conservator, obtaining third party acceptance of DPAs, the differences between unconditional and springing DPAs, and the form and execution of DPAs, as well as many other topics. In addition, practical advice is provided for attorneys concerning setting up a DPA drafting system and on the pricing of customized DPAs. The portfolio includes extensive forms and practice insights which are intended to help practitioners implement the strategies and ideas of the text."
