A Mississippi Durable Power of Attorney Form is designed to make sure an Attorney-in-Fact maintains their powers even after the Principal has been declared incapable of making their own decisions by a doctor. There are a variety of reasons a doctor might declare someone incapacitated, from being diagnosed with dementia to becoming comatose, but unless the Power of Attorney agreement is durable, it will be declared void.

Additionally, if the Principal and Attorney-in-Fact are spouses and get a divorce, under Mississippi state law, the agreement will not automatically be void. It is generally recommended that, after a divorce, the Principal revoke the Power of Attorney agreement and name a new Attorney-in-Fact, but if they wish for their former spouse to retain their powers they can simply leave it in place.
