Colorado Durable Power of Attorney Form

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)

A Colorado Durable Power of Attorney Form is used when the Principal wishes the Attorney-in-Fact to retain their Power of Attorney even if the Principal is declared incapacitated. There are many different ways to be incapacitated, such as being declared comatose or diagnosed with dementia, but this kind of form will allow the Attorney-in-Fact to retain control through all of them.

In Colorado, if the Attorney-in-Fact is the Principal’s spouse or partner, then a divorce or even a separation will immediately void the Power of Attorney Agreement. In addition, the Principal should be aware that this kind of agreement does not cover medical decisions, and a separate form would be required to give the Attorney-in-Fact power over health care decisions.
