An official letter or document known as a power of attorney grants someone the right to act on behalf of another person. This legal document gives someone the authority to decide for you or take action on your behalf. This might apply to private matters, professional situations, or legal proceedings.
The Power of Attorney
may be granted if you are incapable of acting on your own behalf physically or if you lack the mental capacity to do so.
Typical justifications for processing powers of attorney include:
- People who purchase or sell real estate abroad
- Granting authority to a relative living abroad to handle your legal or financial affairs
- Hiring an international attorney to represent a third party in court
- Businesses granting authority to a representative abroad
- Demonstrating your authority to act on someone else's behalf if they are no longer able to do so for yourself (e.g a Lasting Power of Attorney registered with the USA government)
You might be required to have your power of attorney certified by an apostille if you need to use it outside the USA. Then, your document will be legalized for use worldwide. For powers of attorney that have already been attested by a solicitor or notary, we offer the apostille.
