A Power of Attorney is simply a document under which you as the "Principal," give legal permission to another person or entity
(referred to as an "Attorney-in-Fact" or "Agent") to act on your behalf. You sign a Power of Attorney document so that your Agent will
be able to handle your affairs during a period of time when you are unavailable or unable to do so. An Agent is not required to be a lawyer.
A Power of Attorney may be either general or specific. A General Power of Attorney Form gives the Agent broad authority to act for you.
A Special Power of Attorney grants the Agent a limited authority to act only in specific situations. It may also called
a Limited Power of Attorney Form.
