Kentucky Limited Power of Attorney Form
A Kentucky limited power of attorney is a form that grants permission to an agent so they can perform one-time tasks for a principal. The agent can accept mail for the principal, transport their vehicle, sign a check in their place, or handle other similar matters. Once the agent finalizes the duties, the limited power of attorney terminates.
The document ends if the principal becomes unable to speak or think for themselves, a state called incapacitation. Individuals with this mental or physical disability have experienced an injury, illness, or disease that impacts their ability to make rational decisions. Alzheimer’s disease, for example, affects a person’s critical thinking skills, rendering them incapacitated.
