Free Power of Attorney Documents?
« on: August 08, 2013, 02:07:17 PM »
Does anyone know of a good source online for free power of attorney documents?  I've tried searching and everything I've found makes you sign up for a free trial or pay after all once I complete the documents.  I just need to give power of attorney to my father for selling my car on my behalf.

Thank you in advance!

This website has them on the right side.  I can't verify their validity or anything though.  I've heard the site is good.

Power of attorney requirements vary by state, but to simplify compliance, many states have adopted a "statutory power of attorney" (or similar) that definitively satisfies the relevant requirements. In other states, the state bar association will often offer a form of power of attorney believed to satisfy the relevant requirements. For example (without confirming these are current):

Awesome, thank you!  I'm bookmarking my state's page for future use.

My husband is just going to drive to where the car sold and take care of it himself.  We get different answers every time we talk to the bank where we need to pay off the loan, so I just don't trust that even with POA documents, they'd let my father pick up the title.  It's incredible how little the bank seems to know about their policies and procedures!  They're nice, just clueless.
