Alabama durable power of attorney allows a resident to transfer all or limited financial rights to someone else. The person selected should be someone that is trustworthy and can handle the responsibility of the powers given. The term “durable” means that the form does not terminate if the principal should become incapacitated. In this situation, the only way to remove an incompetent agent, if the principal becomes disabled, is to seek a long court process. Therefore, it’s ideal to have the agent be a relative that is also named in the principal’s will to avoid a conflict of interest.
