INSTRUCTIONS FOR
GENERAL POWER OF ATTORNEY
A person (Principal) signs a Power of Attorney in front of a notary to give a trusted and willing person (Attorney-in-Fact or
Agent) authority to act in place of the Principal. A Regular Power of Attorney has a beginning (effective) date, and ends
either on the end date or when the Principal revokes it. A Durable Power of Attorney has no specified end date and ends
on the death of the Principal, or upon revocation by the Principal. Also, with a Durable Power of Attorney, if the Principal
becomes disabled or incapacitated, the Attorney-in-Fact may continue acting as such despite the disability, incapacity or
the expiration date.
A Power of Attorney must be notarized.
This packet provides a General Power of Attorney form that asks you to choose either a regular or durable Power
of Attorney.
STEP 1: OBTAIN the General Power of Attorney packet at the Maricopa County Superior Court “forms” website
or at one of the Self Service Centers located in the valley.
