  1. Re: power of attorney
    A general POA lets the person to whom you gave the power (called your attorney-in-fact) act on your behalf in virtually all situations. A POA can also be for a limited purpose. For example, maybe you’re selling your house, but you’re going to be out of town. You might give a power of attorney to the lawyer to sign all the papers on your behalf and to deposit the check in your account, but for no other purpose. That’s a limited or special POA. A common special power is a Health Care POA. There you give someone the poweer to make medical decisions for you.
