Mom has agreed to DPOA. Thank goodness. I know a lot of you have done this. I hear an attny. is not needed, easier but not necessary. That would be my preferred route. Should we combine medical and financial or keep them separate? I have found forms online for my state that are quite inexpensive. Is that a good way to go? Any advice or info would be most welcome. Thank you!

Check with your state's website, it may have pertinent info and guidance on the state laws for poa, and in my state they even have the forms right there, for free, with lots of helpful info on who to choose, cautions, etc. You do not need an attorney to simply name a poa. It might be a good idea but it's an expense most folks can't afford, so if you read up on how your state laws affect poa you can save the lawyer fees.

Just checked the reviews on LegalZoom lots of complaints with the service but not the product so much. It was a good start, I will delve further:)

I'm not plugging this site exclusively, but LegalZoom (and probably others like it) will walk you through the process for obtaining all sorts of documents. You're asked all sorts of questions, which you answer, and the document is drawn up based on your answers. They then email and/or mail you a copy, and then you can get it notarized/witnessed.

I searched the forum but the info I found does not talk about the process of obtaining DPOA it's mostly about what it is. I could easily have missed something though.
