A North Dakota General Power of Attorney Form is used when the Principal wishes to give the Attorney-in-Fact universal power over the Principal’s finances. This includes overseeing bank accounts, managing investments, giving gifts and paying bills. These agreements are rarely Springing, as they will often be used by a Principal who needs to delegate their financial authority, or who is legally capable but may need help managing.
Under North Dakota state law, in order for a Power of Attorney agreement to be valid, it must be witnessed by a Notary Pubic or at least two (2) adults. Neither of the two witnesses can be related to the Principal or the Attorney-in-Fact. Most law offices will have a witness or two available for exactly this purpose.
