Virginia Powers Of Attorney
In Virginia, you can sign a durable power of attorney to appoint someone to handle your assets if you become incapacitated. A power of attorney can appoint someone to manage and transfer all assets, make gifts on your behalf, and create and amend any trusts you set up.
In Virginia, you can also sign a health care power of attorney, appointing someone to make health care decisions for you when you’re unable to do so yourself. It is important to choose this person wisely, since this person will be able to provide informed consent for treatment and will be able to refuse treatment for you.
