A Kentucky Durable Power of Attorney Form is designed to give the Attorney-in-Fact power to act on behalf of the Principal, even if the Principal is comatose, diagnosed with dementia, or otherwise rendered incapable of making their own decisions. This kind of agreement is usually Springing, meaning it will only come into effect once the Principal is declared incapacitated by a doctor.
Note that, under Kentucky state law, if the Principal and Attorney-in-Fact are spouses, this agreement will not automatically terminate if they get a divorce. The Principal may wish to revoke this agreement once they get a divorce and name a new Attorney-in-Fact. It should also be noted that, regardless of the terms of this agreement, it cannot be used to give the Attorney-in-Fact power over the Principal’s health care.
