Kansas Durable (Financial) Power of Attorney Form
The Kansas Durable (Financial) Power of Attorney allows an Agent to act on behalf of an individual, termed the Principal, to manage their finances in some manner for so long as the duration of the contract provides. As this is a “durable” type of Power of Attorney, the decision making powers the Agent will be bestowed upon the execution of the contract will remain active even in the event the Principal becomes unable to act for themselves. Should the Principal wish their powers to become inactive in such an event, they should instead execute a General Power of Attorney.
