A Delaware General Power of Attorney Form is used to give the Attorney-in-Fact power to act on behalf of the Principal in many areas. Generally included in these forms are financial matters, such as paying bills or managing the Principal’s accounts and buying and selling large property, such as Real Estate or Automobiles.
Note that, unlike some states, not all Power of Attorney agreements in Delaware are durable. This kind of agreement can be set up to go into effect when the Principal is declared incapacitated by a doctor, but if it is not it will go into effect immediately and become void if the Principal is declared incapacitated. Also, regardless of the terms of the agreement, this form cannot be used to give the Attorney-in-Fact power over the Principal’s health care.
