Colorado Power of Attorney Forms

The Colorado Power of Attorney Forms are a set of legal agreements that allow a person (typically known as the Principal, although other names are possible) to cede control over certain legal, financial and medical decisions to another person or persons (known as the Attorney-in-Fact). What specific decisions the Attorney-in-Fact has power over will depend on what kind of agreement they and the Principal sign.

There are several different types of Power of Attorney forms, covering everything from medical decisions to broad financial and property related decisions. They can also last for different amounts of time, depending on whether the Principal wishes the Attorney-in-Fact to retain power if they are incapacitated. The Principal should be very sure about which kind of form they are using before signing.
