California Durable (Financial) Power of Attorney Form


The California Durable (Financial) Power of Attorney provides an individual (called the Principal) with a legal means to call on another party of their choosing to take over the management of one or more of their financial tasks. An inherent feature of this type of Power of Attorney (POA) is that it will remain active in the event of the individual’s incapacity. In law, this is referred to as a “durable” type of POA.
