Louisiana Durable Power of Attorney Form

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)

The Louisiana Durable Power of Attorney Form is designed to give the Attorney-in-Fact the power to act on behalf of the Principal, even if the Principal is declared comatose, diagnosed with dementia, or otherwise declared incapable of making their own decisions. This kind of agreement is usually classified as Springing, meaning it will only go into effect after the Principal has been declared incapacitated.

In Louisiana, if the Attorney-in-Fact and the Principal are spouses and get divorced the Power of Attorney agreement will not automatically be terminated. If the Principal doesn’t want their former spouse to retain their powers, they should make sure to voluntarily revoke their agreement and, if they desire, draft a new agreement with a new Attorney-in-Fact.
