Who should be the power of attorney?
If I am married and not legally separated, can my boyfriend be appointed as my power of attorney?
Husbands and wives do not automatically have any right act as the agent for the other. You have the right to name whomever you wish as your agent under a Durable Power of Attorney. Durable Powers of Attorney should always be tailored to the particular needs of the person for whom it is being made. One size definitely does not fit all. You should have your Durable Power of Attorney drafted by an attorney for you rather than just getting a form on-line. In your marital situation this would be particularly important.
