Nevada Durable (Statutory) Power of Attorney Form

The Nevada Durable (Statutory) Power of Attorney is a legally-enforceable document that describes the ways in which one individual, known as the Principal, wishes for another individual or entity, known as the Agent, to manage their affairs in some manner for a certain period of time. The precise nature of the Agent’s powers and the duration they may exercise them must be detailed in the document. It should be noted, however, as per state law definitions (NRS 162A.040), the “durability” of this Power of Attorney (POA) refers to the fact that it will “not terminated by the principal’s incapacity.” If the Principal instead wants to create a non-durable POA, they should use a General POA form.
