You can find the right power of attorney form in New Hampshire for your specific needs below. All of our forms comply with New Hampshire’s Uniform Power of Attorney Act and Chapter 137-J of Title X of the 2013 Revised New Hampshire Statutes.
New Hampshire Durable Power of Attorney
A Durable PoA permits a grantor to authorize a third party to handle financial and legal matters on behalf of the grantor. This may include decisions related to banking, portfolio management, real estate, and other important matters. Because the PoA is durable, it remains in effect even when the grantor becomes incapacitated.
New Hampshire General Power of Attorney
A General PoA grants the same authority as a Durable PoA, except it states explicitly that the PoA shall terminate upon the incapacitation or death of the grantor. The courts will consider all PoAs as durable unless the document contains the necessary language to create the incapacitation exception.
New Hampshire Limited Power of Attorney
A Limited PoA grants a third party the temporary right to make financial and/or legal decisions regarding a specific matter only. For example, an investor may sign a Limited Power of Attorney that gives a stockbroker the power to buy or sell stock without prior approval if certain conditions come to pass.
New Hampshire Medical Power of Attorney
A medical PoA, or Power of Attorney for Health Care, grants a third party the right to make medical decisions on behalf of the grantor in the event of incapacitation. Such events may include a coma, Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia, etc. This PoA allows designated individuals to make treatment, resuscitation, and end-of-life decisions.
New Hampshire Minor (Child) Power of Attorney
A Minor Child PoA permits parents and guardians to grant a trusted third party the parental right to make medical decisions for their child in the event of an emergency. Most parents utilize this type of PoA if they plan on traveling abroad. However, they may use a Minor Child PoA whenever they anticipate an inability to make medical decisions for their children.
