Hawaii Limited (Special) Power of Attorney Form

The Hawaii Limited (Special) Power of Attorney allows for a range of Power of Attorney (POA) arrangements to be recorded in a legally-binding written contract. Once in effect, the creator of the contract (the Principal) and the individual or entity who agrees to act on behalf of the Principal for one or more matters (the Agent) are bound by the terms of the POA. Hence, it is imperative that if the Principal does not wish to give unconstrained decision-making powers to their Agent, they use a Limited POA to set out specific terms and guidelines for their Agent to follow.
