North Dakota Durable (Financial) Power of Attorney Form
The North Dakota Durable (Financial) Power of Attorney serves the needs of an individual (the Principal) who wishes to delegate their decision making powers regarding their finances to another party (their Agent). While a General Power of Attorney will terminate upon the Principal’s incapacity, a Durable Power of Attorney will continue in spite of such conditions. Hence, it is vital that the Principal understands the distinctions between these two types of documents, and chooses the one which will best support their interests.
