Vermont Durable Power of Attorney Form

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)

The Vermont Durable Power of Attorney Form is designed to let the Agent retain their authority, even if the Principal is declared incapable of making their own decisions by a doctor. These agreements are usually known as Springing, which means they will only take effect once the Principal has been incapacitated, rather than immediately upon being signed.

The Principal should be aware that, under Vermont state law, if the Principal and Agent are spouses and get a divorce, this agreement will not be terminated. While a Court may occasionally declare an agreement signed between former spouses invalid, it must simpler and safer for the Principal to revoke the agreement, which they can do at any time so long as they are legally capable of making their own decisions.
