The authority to act legally for another person.

Principals who are temporarily or permanently incapacitated, or who cannot sign important documents, are most commonly given power of attorney.

The power of attorney can come to an end for a variety of reasons, including the principal’s revocation or death, the agreement being declared illegal by a court, or the agent’s inability to perform the tasks specified in the agreement. If the principal and the agent are married, the authorization may be nullified in the event of a divorce.
