Georgia Limited Power of Attorney Form
A Georgia Limited (Special) Power of Attorney, also known as an “LPOA”, is a form used by residents of the state to give an agent (or “attorney-in-fact”) the power to fulfill specific tasks. This document gives the agent the legal ability to make financial decisions, sign forms, run errands, and much more.
Because the LPOA is a non-durable document, the agent’s power is terminated should the principal suffer a medical event that leaves them unable to communicate their wishes.
The agent’s power is also revoked should any of the following occur:
- The agent performs all of the duties requested of them;
- The principal revokes the contract (using a revocation document); or
- The agent exercises powers they were not granted.
Signing requirements (§ 10-6B-5) – Once the principal completes the form (by hand or by typing in the fields) they must sign the form in the presence of the following (who must also sign the LPOA):
- Notary Public; and
- One (1) witness.
