1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)

A New York General Power of Attorney Form is used to give the Attorney-in-Fact blanket power over the Principal’s financial affairs. This will generally include overseeing their bank accounts, managing their investments, giving gifts on their behalf, etc. This does not include¬† power to make decisions about the Principal’s medical treatments, which are governed separately and therefore require a different form.

In order to be valid in New York, a Power of Attorney agreement is required to be witnessed by at least two (2) adults who are unrelated to either the Principal or the Attorney-in-Fact. Alternatively, it can be witnessed by a Notary Public, if the Principal cannot get two adult witnesses.
