An Utah Durable Power of Attorney Form is used when the Principal wants their Attorney-in-Fact to retain their powers even after the Principal has been declared incapable of making their own decisions. There are a variety of conditions that might make a Principal incapable of making their own decisions (the most common being dementia) but this determination must be made by a doctor.
This agreement is usually Immediate rather than Springing, as the Principal will need another party to manage their affairs when they are incapable. It usually covers financial concerns, such as paying off debts or managing investments, but can also occasionally cover childcare. Note that this agreement cannot be used to give the Attorney-in-Fact power over the Principal’s medical decisions.
