An Arkansas General Power of Attorney Form is used when the Principal wishes to give the Attorney-in-Fact control over a variety of different decisions. This type of form will give the Attorney-in-Fact the ability to act on the Principal’s behalf in matters of everything from property, both Real Estate and Personal, to financial decisions and even childcare.
Note that this kind of Power of Attorney form does not cover Medical Care (the aptly named Medical Power of Attorney Form covers that). Under Arkansas state law, all Power of Attorney Agreements are durable unless they specifically state that they terminate when the Principal becomes incapacitated. In order to ensure that the Principal is not signing a Durable Power of Attorney Agreement when they desire a General one, the Principal should read the agreement exceptionally carefully and be sure the clause stating that it terminates upon their incapacity is present.
