A blank power of attorney form is a template that includes the necessary legal language, requiring the user to put in only specific information, such as the names of the parties involved, according to RocketLawyer. A power of attorney form gives a person permission to act on behalf of another.
A power of attorney can be effective immediately or only in specific situations, according to Nolo. Specific types of power of attorney forms include those for medical and financial decisions and require legal language clearly specifying such instances. For example, a medical power of attorney may only become active if a person is incapacitated. A person receiving the power from a power of attorney agreement does not need to be an attorney.
