An Indiana Durable Power of Attorney Form is a legal form designed to give the Attorney-in-Fact the power to act on behalf of the Principal, even if the Principal is rendered incapable of making their own decisions. These types of forms are typically Springing Agreements, IE agreements that will only come into effect once the Principal has been incapacitated, but this must be specified in the agreement itself, otherwise they will come into effect immediately upon being signed.

Under Indiana State Law, a Power of Attorney agreement does not require any witnesses or notarization to be valid, although witnesses and notarization will make it less likely to be declared invalid in court. In addition, in Indiana, if the Principal and Attorney-in-Fact are spouses and they get a divorce, the agreement will automatically be invalidated.
