New Jersey Limited (Special) Power of Attorney Form
The New Jersey Limited (Special) Power of Attorney is the most appropriate document for an individual (the Principal) to use if they want to direct another party (the Agent) to represent them only in specific instances or for a specific period of time. The contract provided here offers the Principal an easy way to list such instances in way that clearly communicates to the Agent what is expected of them. So long as the Principal’s responses do not conflict with any relevant state Power of Attorney laws and they uphold state signing requirements (as found below), they will in effect initiate a legally-binding relationship with the Agent.
