The Texas General Power of Attorney Form is designed to give the Agent almost universal power over all of the Principal’s finances and other monetary responsibilities. These agreements are rarely either Durable or Springing, as they are most often used by a Principal who wants assistance managing their finances, either because they are incapable or because they wish to share the load, so to speak.
Like many states, a Texas Power of Attorney agreement must be witnessed by at least two (2) adults or a Notary Public in order to be valid. Unlike most of those states, there are no restrictions on who the witnesses can be. They can be related to the Principal or Agent, or can be complete strangers, depending on what is convenient to the Principal.
