Texas Power of Attorney Forms allow you the ability to make custom Power of Attorney (POA) documents quickly. LegacyWriter forms are sophisticated web questionnaires that ask questions specific to the state of Texas. You can make both Financial and Health Care Powers of Attorney.
The Texas Financial Power of Attorney Form gives you the ability to make your own custom Financial Power of Attorney online. In the form, you assign an Agent and specify financial responsibilities to your Agent; for example, you may only want your Agent to be able to make stock trades for you. In the form you can choose to have the Texas Financial POA go immediately into effect, or you can choose to have it only go into effect when you become incapacitated and unable to communicate (this is called a "springing" Power of Attorney). You can terminate a Power of Attorney at any time, and any Power of Attorney becomes invalid at your death.
Health Care POA
The Texas Health Care Power of Attorney Form allows you to create a custom Health Care Power of Attorney (often referred to as a Medical POA). In the Health Care POA Form you appoint an "Agent" to make health care decisions on your behalf. You have the right to create a Health Care POA under Section 166.151, et seq., of the Texas Code also known as the Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care Act. This Texas Power of Attorney only goes into effect in the case you become incapacitated and are unable to make your own health care decisions. If you also have a Texas Living Will your Agent will have the ability to interpret and enforce your wishes in the Living Will. With LegacyWriter you can create a Living Will and a Health Care Power of Attorney at the same time, by beginning either questionnaire.
