Taking a Power of Attorney

A Power of Attorney is a document which grants the legal authority for someone to sign on behalf of another person. Quite often, for example, a spouse may execute a Power of Attorney to the other spouse in case documents must be signed during a period of time when the spouse granting the Power of Attorney cannot appear before a notary at the time of notarization.
