The Oregon Durable Power of Attorney Form is designed to let the Agent continue to act on behalf of the Principal even if the Principal is falls into a coma, is diagnosed with dementia or is otherwise incapable of making decisions for themselves by a doctor or other medical institution.

If the Principal is married to the person named as an Agent in their Power of Attorney agreement, they should be aware that under Oregon state law, the agreement will not be voided if they get a divorce. Unless their wish their former spouse to retain their powers they should be sure to revoke the agreement and, if necessary, draft a new agreement naming a new Agent.
