North Dakota General (Financial) Power of Attorney Form
The North Dakota General (Financial) Power of Attorney is a type of Power of Attorney that notably includes provisions relating to the fact that it will cease to be valid if the Principal (the creator of the contract) becomes medically incapable at some point in the future. It is for this reason that a General Power of Attorney directly contrasts to a Durable Power of Attorney. A Power of Attorney with durable provisions means that it will continue to be valid if such circumstances transpire. Neither type is recommended over the other—it is simply up to the Principal to work out which one will better serve their unique needs.
