Arkansas Limited Power of Attorney Form
An Arkansas Limited Power of Attorney is a legal document that gives a person the temporary right to carry out tasks for another. The individual handling said tasks is called the “agent”, and is commonly a family member or friend (although anyone can be selected). The person completing the form (and assigning the powers) is called the “principal”.
The power of attorney will terminate after any of the following occur:
- The agent completes all of their assigned action(s);
- The power of attorney expires;
- The principal revokes the form using a revocation of POA; and/or
- The principal becomes incapacitated (unable to communicate).
When selecting an agent, it’s important the principal choose someone that is honest, trustworthy, and capable to handle the task(s) they need to be completed.
Signing requirements (§ 28-68-105): The document must be notarized.
