These are two legal powers that accomplish the same purpose in two completely different ways. I’ll discuss the Power of Attorney today and the Conservatorship in my next blog. There are several kinds of Powers of Attorney but the most common one is the Durable Power of Attorney. This is a voluntary power given to a person called the Attorney-in-fact by the grantor of the Power so that the attorney-in-fact can handle the affairs of the grantor when the grantor cannot due to illness, incapacity, absence or otherwise. It is given at a time when the grantor can handle his own affairs. It is recorded in the Register of Deeds office and can be revoked at any time by the Grantor.
