The South Dakota General Power of Attorney Form lets the Agent make decisions about all aspects of the Principal’s finances. This kind of agreement is rarely Springing or Durable, as it is intended for a Principal who is technically legally capable of managing their finances but might need some assistance from another party.
Under South Carolina state law, a Power of Attorney agreement is required to be witnessed by a Notary Public in order to be valid. If not witnessed by a Notary Public, then two (2) adult witnesses are usually acceptable, but the Principal should be aware that this puts it at greater risk of being declared invalid by a Court some time in the future, although this is very rare. The Principal should still try to locate a Notary Public, if at all possible.
