WHAT IS A DURABLE POWER OF ATTORNEY IN TEXAS?

This question is one that is frequently asked in estate planning. A durable power of attorney in Texas is a signed paper that allows you to give your right to make business and final decisions, either temporarily or permanently, for yourself, to another person if you are unable to make such decisions at that time either due to illness, disability or some sort of incapacity. Such document will include, among other things, the name of the individual whom you are appointing as your agent, an alternate for such position, as well as a listing of what powers you are wanting to give your agent. The durable power of attorney document requires your signature before a notary or someone else who is lawfully authorized to administer oaths.

MEDICAL DIRECTIVES IN TEXAS

A Medical Directive in Texas is a document that helps you communicate your end-of-life wishes while you are still competent and able to make such decisions. During my practice, many individuals have stated that while they were comfortable making medical decisions for their loved ones under the loved one's medical power of attorney, they were very thankful that when the time came to make decisions about whether or not to allow their loved one to live the rest of their life with artificial measures, such decision had already been made by their loved one via their Texas Medical Directive document.
