An Alabama power of attorney form grants an individual (known as the “agent”) with permission to make personal or business decisions on behalf of another. Common reasons why a person signs a POA is because they:

  1. Cannot make decisions on their own due to health problems;
  2. Are out of the state or country and need a document signed; or
  3. They need to have their accountant file their taxes.

The person that completes the form, (the “principal”), should choose an agent they personally know and trust. This can include family, close friends, and professionals (such as an attorney).
