The Mississippi Power of Attorney authorizes a substitute, known as an “agent” or “attorney-in-fact”, to act in the place of the individual executing the form. The executor (referred to as the “principal”) will have to specify which types of authority they want to transfer within the document itself. The powers that can be delivered rely on the category of POA carried out, for example, one may allow financial actions, health care decisions, or parental authority. Despite the fact that there are different forms of the instrument, they will all require the same basic formula. The principal will have to provide specific details pertaining to their agent, the powers that they seek to grant, and the expiration of the conveyance. Once these matters are settled upon, the primary party will have to supply their signature as compelled by law (typically under the review of witnesses and/or a notarial officer).
