Oklahoma Durable Power of Attorney Form

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)

An Oklahoma Durable Power of Attorney Form is used when the Principal wishes to ensure that their Attorney-in-Fact will retain their powers even after the Principal has been declared incapable of making their own decisions by a doctor. These agreements are usually Springing, as they will only need to go into effect after the Principal has already been declared incapacitated.

If the Principal and Attorney-in-Fact are married and get a divorce, under Oklahoma state law the agreement will not automatically be terminated. It is recommended therefore, that the Principal revoke the agreement. Even if they want the Attorney-in-Fact to retain their powers, they should still revoke and rewrite the agreement, as otherwise the agreement may be susceptible to being declared invalid by a Judge.
