Georgia Limited (Special) Power of Attorney Form
Any Power of Attorney (POA) in the state of Georgia that addresses a specific, rather than broad issue or circumstance can be referred to as a Georgia Limited (Special) Power of Attorney. While an individual may indeed create a POA which grants an Agent with broad decision-making powers, doing so may make it difficult to delineate precisely where such powers start and end. Therefore, it may be preferable to more precisely specify what an Agent can or cannot do, and in which circumstances their powers will come into effect.
