Matrium Law Group is a family law and estate planning law firm located in Missoula, Montana. If you need a financial POA or a health care POA, or both, you should contact a Matrium Law Group attorney at (406) 552-7814. Whether one or two documents would be appropriate for a financial POA and health care POA depends on the principal’s situation. Two documents would be preferred when naming one person to be a health care agent and a different person to be a financial agent.
However, if the principal is naming the same person as agent to serve in both capacities, the principal could use one POA. Using one document may be more efficient, while using two documents may result in more privacy.
