A Puerto Rico Durable Power of Attorney Form is used when the Principal wants their Attorney-in-Fact to continue to be able to act on their behalf even if the Principal is declared comatose, diagnosed with a mental disorder like dementia, or otherwise incapable of making or communicating their decisions. Durable is a term that can apply to all Power of Attorney forms, but these forms are specifically Durable.

Often times a Durable Power of Attorney is also known as Springing, which means they will only go into effect after the Principal has been declared incapacitated. This is because this agreement is most commonly used by a Principal who only needs it once they have been rendered incapacitated, as until that point they are capable of making their own decisions.
