10 Types of Massachusetts power of attorney 

Durable Financial Power of Attorney - A durable power of attorney in Massachusetts can be utilized to appoint a person to manage your financial concerns and other (relevant) aspects of your life for you. This sort of document, which can be configured to remain effective even if you become disabled, can be valuable during severe or even life-threatening medical crises. That implies that if you become psychologically incapable and can no longer make choices for yourself as determined by your doctor, your agent will be able to make choices for you.

General (Financial) Power of Attorney - A general power of attorney in Massachusetts is a legal document that permits an individual (the "principal") to designate someone else (the "agent") to handle their financial matters. This is frequent for a principal who can rely on their agent to make choices for them when they are away from the office or do not want to handle the day-to-day operations. A general power of attorney is non-durable, which means it will become null and invalid if the principal becomes disabled.

Limited Power of Attorney - The Massachusetts Limited Power of Attorney Form is a sort of power appointment that only gives an agent authority on a case-by-case basis. That is, it will provide the agent who accepts this Power with precise instructions and obligations. As a result, the principal is urged (and in many circumstances mandated) to utilize this form to document his/her orders in a way that eliminates the possibility of misunderstanding. In all situations, the individual the principal wants to represent should be trustworthy, dependable, and capable of completing the responsibilities the principal has set out.

Medical Power of Attorney - A Massachusetts health care proxy, also known as a "medical power of attorney," permits a person to choose a "proxy" to make healthcare choices for them. The proxy will be told to carry out the principal's wishes and desires. The proxy should consult the patient's Living Will for end-of-life administration preferences.

Living Will - A living will is a legal document that allows the principal or declarant to list out their end-of-life treatment choices. These are written instructions that allow their healthcare providers to understand what the principal wants even if they’re incapacitated. It must be executed and submitted to the healthcare providers ahead of time. 

Advance Directive - An advance directive is another power of attorney and it allows the declarant to set out their medical care choices. Additionally, it allows them to appoint an agent to handle issues outside the scope of their written instructions. It can be considered a combination of the living will and medical power of attorney. 

Minor (Child) Power of Attorney - If you are unable or not available to care for your ward(s), you should utilize the Massachusetts Guardian of Minor Power of Attorney Form. Massachusetts General Legislations Chapter 190B, Section 5-202 governs this form. The individual has to be well-informed and willing to step into the role if necessary. After the issuing parent(s) or guardian(s) put their signatures, the language in this form allows your agent to make parenting choices for your wards.

Real Estate Power of Attorney - The Massachusetts Real Estate Power of Attorney Form is a form that allows a principal to appoint an agent to handle the transaction, closing, refinancing, and/or running of the principal's real estate on his or her behalf. The executing signatures on these forms must be sufficiently verified for them to be valid. As a result, two eyewitnesses plus the presence of a notary will be needed to witness the main signing act.

Power of Attorney Revocation Form - When an outdated power of attorney should be revoked, it prevents the agent specified within it from continuing to function as the principal's representative. The first step in revocation is to correctly complete and execute this document. The next step is to ensure that your agent, and any other organizations that may have been depending on the prototype document, have a copy and are aware of the cancellation. An individual who uses a Power of Attorney and has no reason to believe that it has been rescinded is not accountable for acting in the manner that it permits.
