Financial Power of Attorney: Planning for the Unexpected in Texas


In the intricate tapestry of estate planning, one crucial thread often overlooked is the financial power of attorney. While many diligently draft wills and establish trusts, the matter of who will make financial decisions on their behalf in the event of incapacity is frequently left unaddressed. This oversight can lead to significant complications and stress for individuals and families. In Texas, where the unexpected is not uncommon, having a comprehensive plan in place is paramount.

Understanding Financial Power of Attorney

A financial power of attorney (POA) is a legal document that grants authority to an appointed individual, known as the agent or attorney-in-fact, to manage financial affairs on behalf of another person, the principal. This authority extends to a wide range of financial matters, including banking, real estate, investments, and taxes.

In Texas, the financial power of attorney can be structured to take effect immediately upon signing or only in the event of the principal’s incapacity, known as a “springing” power of attorney. Janelle Cremé, Esq., with her extensive experience in estate planning, assists clients in understanding the nuances of these options and crafting POA documents tailored to their specific needs and preferences.

Why It Matters in Texas

In the Lone Star State, where life can be unpredictable, having a financial power of attorney is crucial for ensuring that someone you trust can step in to manage your financial affairs if you become incapacitated due to illness or injury. Without a POA in place, loved ones may face significant hurdles in accessing funds needed for your care or managing ongoing financial responsibilities, such as paying bills or maintaining property.
