Power of Attorney in Michigan

Power of Attorney is an instrument by which an individual (known as the principal) grants general or specific authority to another (known as the attorney in fact) to act on the principal’s behalf with the same authority that the principal possesses. Powers are used for financial and business transactions, for making health care decisions if the principal becomes incompetent to act on their own behalf and to make the decision of whether to use extraordinary means to keep one alive. These instruments can be revoked at any time and automatically terminate on the death of the principal.
