Kentucky Durable (Financial) Power of Attorney Form

The Kentucky Durable (Financial) Power of Attorney is useful in circumstances where an individual, named the Principal, cannot handle all of their financial issues by themselves. The reasons why they cannot or do not wish to are legally irrelevant, so long as they make the decision to elect an Attorney-in-Fact (the party they nominate to handle one or more matters on their behalf) in a competent state. While the Principal cannot be incapacitated when drafting or executing this form, its durable nature means it will not be affected by their future incapacity.
