New Jersey Limited Power of Attorney Form


A New Jersey limited power of attorney is selected when a principal needs another person (the agent) to act in their place while executing specific tasks. The principal chooses this form if the duties are one-time or want the agent to have short-lasting power. It typically ends once the agent finishes the assigned tasks or the document reaches its expiration date. If the principal completes another type of power of attorney when this form is active, both remain effective unless stated otherwise (§ 46:2B-8.10).

A principal fills out this form when they need particular tasks done that they cannot otherwise carry out themselves. Cashing a check, signing a document, or picking up mail for a principal are typical uses for this document. As long as the tasks are not long-lasting or meant to exist after the principal dies or becomes incapacitated, a limited power of attorney is the most applicable option.

Signing requirements (§ 46:2B-8.9): Notarization mandatory.
