The Arizona Durable Power of Attorney Form is a form that continues to be effective even if the principal is rendered incapacitated and incapable of making their own decisions (such as if they develop dementia or are rendered comatose).


In order to create a Durable Power of Attorney Form, the agreement must explicitly state that the Power of Attorney will be unaffected by anything, including future incapacity, disability or even the passage of time. If the POA form fails to specify this, then it will be rendered void upon the Principals’ incapacity.


This can still lapse if the POA is revoked by either the Principal or a Court, if the Attorney-in-Fact is no longer available for whatever reason or if the Attorney-in-Fact is the Principal’s Spouse and they divorce.
