Authorize another person to make decisions on your behalf with power of attorney.
A power of attorney is a legal document that allows an individual to make decisions for another person, known as the principal. There are two main types of power of attorney: financial and medical.
In Georgia, power of attorney must meet certain basic requirements, including being signed by the principal, witnesses, and a notary public. There are standardized forms available for financial and health care powers of attorney.
