You can appoint up to four persons in succession.
If you appoint one person at the same time, indicate whether your attorney is male or female.
If you appoint more than one person at the same time, indicate whether your attorneys will act jointly (together), or jointly and severally (together and separately).
To prepare an effective power of attorney for personal care:
you must sign it in the presence of two witnesses; then
your witnesses must sign it.
The following persons cannot be your witnesses:
your attorney’s spouse, or
a person less than eighteen years old.
After you print one side, flip the sheet over and print the other side, then cut out each power of attorney along the borders, and fold it in the middle.
Keep one copy of the powers of attorney on you at all times, and save the other copies.
