Using a Power of Attorney to Protect Your Family

With deportations and immigration-related arrests on the rise, many who find themselves in the United States without status fear for what the future holds.  If you find yourself in this position, perhaps one of the most important steps you can take is to execute a valid power of attorney.

The power of attorney can be used to protect your family.  A power of attorney is a document authorizing a person to act as the agent of the person authorizing it.  A powerful instrument if executed properly, it can serve as an important preventative measure.

A power of attorney can be important in a variety of situations.  For example, if detained or otherwise unavailable, your power of attorney can withdraw money to pay for your expenses such as a mortgage or immigration-related costs.  If you have children, you may be able to use the power of attorney as a temporary measure to designate someone you trust to pick up or drop off your children from school.

In general and as a preventative measure, it is advisable for everyone to have and execute a power of attorney.  Call King Law Offices today to speak with an attorney that can tailor a power of attorney to your needs.
