Appointing Someone to Act on Your Behalf
A power of attorney is a document that gives a person the legal authority to act on your behalf. Although you may be married, you cannot assume that your spouse will have the right to make decisions about your medical care or financial affairs. Without establishing a power of attorney, other people will make decisions for you and this is a risk you should not take. Whether you are a single parent or a married spouse, it is important to appoint someone you trust to make important decisions for you when you are unable to.
