Power Of Attorney

If you need a notary to help with the signing of your Power Of Attorney, call George at 225-907-5280. As a Mobile Notary Public serving the Greater Baton Rouge region, I can come to your home, business, hospital, nursing home or wherever it is convenient. Best of all, I am available to notarize your POA in the Baton Rouge area 24/7! I really enjoy meeting people as a notary. One of the most common calls I get is to help with a Power Of Attorney (POA). I cover all of East Baton Rouge, West Baton Rouge, Livingston, Ascension and surrounding parishes.

A Power Of Attorney is made by the grantor (the one granting power, also known as the principal) so that an attorney-in-fact (the person authorized by the grantor,also known as the agent) may act on their behalf. A POA may be durable, so that the mandate continues even after the grantor is incapacitated. A POA in Louisiana may be broad so that the agent may handle all affairs for the grantor, except for medical issues. A POA can also be very specific, such as for only one particular real estate transaction.

A Power Of Attorney may also be used for medical affairs, but that is not included in a general mandate. A Healthcare Proxy can be made whereby the agent can make medical decisions on behalf of the grantor, should the grantor not be able to make them on his own.

In Louisiana, the agent must present the original notarized Power Of Attorney when conducting any affairs on behalf of the grantor. It is very important to make sure that the type of affairs that you want your agent to handle are specifically listed in the POA. Notice that the POA must be notarized!
