1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)

The Hawaii Durable Power of Attorney Form gives the Attorney-in-Fact the power to make decisions on behalf of the Principal, even if the Principal is declared incapable of making their own decisions by a doctor (such as being rendered comatose or diagnosed with dementia). The kinds of forms are typically classified as Springing, IE they do not go into effect until the Principal has been classified as incapacitated.

Under Hawaii state law, a Durable Power of Attorney Agreement is not automatically voided if the Attorney-in-Fact is the Principal’s spouse and they get divorced or separated. As such the Principal should usually revoke their Power of Attorney Agreement upon getting a Divorce or Separation, unless they wish for their former partner to continue to act as their Attorney-in-Fact.
