Massachusetts Limited (Special) Power of Attorney Form
The Massachusetts Limited (Special) Power of Attorney can be filled out by any person (referred to as the Principal) who has a specific matter in mind that they would prefer an Attorney-in-Fact (otherwise known as an Agent) to handle. In effect, this form will delegate their decision making powers to the individual or entity they nominate to be their Attorney-in-Fact. Wielding these powers, the Attorney-in-Fact will be required to complete any tasks related to the specific matter with the Principal’s best interests always in center focus.
