Arkansas Power of Attorney Forms

An Arkansas power of attorney form lets a person select an “agent” to perform certain matters on their behalf, such as signing a document or moving money in their financial accounts. In order for the form to be completely effective, it must be signed and notarized. The agent (person receiving power) does not need to sign the document in order for it to be considered legitimate.
