Power of Attorney
Martin Foldie Law is here to help you set up your power of attorney, ensuring that your wishes are enacted when you are unable to speak for yourself. This document takes effect immediately upon creation, allowing you a calmer state of mind. In addition, power of attorney also is in effect should the individual become incapacitated.
Michigan Law requires that any persons involved in this process be 18 years of age or older. The contents of the document can vary drastically depending on the needs of the individual. The document must be signed in the presence of two witnesses and does not need to be filed with the Michigan probate court.
