This workshop is designed to help the attendee understand the different types of powers of attorneys and important considerations to make when executing a legal instrument giving authority to someone else to assist with decision-making. Learn the difference between supported decision-making and substitute decision-making.

Presented by Bet Tzedek Legal Services, we will review what is involved in naming an agent, the scope of an agent’s authority, and how to revoke a power of attorney. The presentation will end by explaining the difference between powers of attorney and conservatorship.
