Get Your Powers of Attorney
Learn what powers of attorney for health care and finances are and why they form the foundation of any estate plan. This class will use the statutory forms to discuss how these documents work. The class will also explain the limitations of these free forms and common problems encountered with all powers of attorney documents.
NOTE: You will not leave class with a signed and notarized document. You will, however, walk through both Wisconsin and Minnesota’s accepted forms (there are multiple) step-by-step with discussion on each area to better understand each area. Some of this will likely take additional thought from individuals – others may know exactly what they wish to do and could, essentially, fill in the blanks in class. Then, one would only need to have two people sign as witnesses and have document notarized. Notaries can be found easily in numerous places around the community, City Hall, banks, and including Tilden Community Center.
