Connecticut Limited (Special) Power of Attorney Form

The Connecticut Limited (Special) Power of Attorney is a type of legal form characterized by the precise nature of its provisions. The provisions explicitly state the manner and circumstances in which an Agent can or cannot act on a Principal’s behalf. As a legally-binding document, the provisions do not simply represent guidelines the Agent must act within—but legal obligations that must be consistently upheld by the Agent when carrying out the duties associated with their role.

Signing Requirements (§ 1-350d) – The signing requirements dictated by state laws depend on whether the Principal will sign the form themselves, or direct another individual to sign it on their behalf. In the former case, the Principal’s signature must be acknowledged before a Notary Public, a commissioner of the Superior Court, or another individual authorized by law to take acknowledgments. In the latter case, one of these parties will need to acknowledge the individual’s signature, and additionally, two (2) witnesses will need to witness their signature.
