Do I really need a power of attorney in Nevada?

You need a power of attorney if you want to give someone the legal authority to access your accounts, pay bills, and handle other finances on your behalf. If you do not have a power of attorney in Nevada, a court likely will choose someone to care for you if you become incapacitated.

A court will do its best to choose someone to make decisions for you, but it could appoint a guardian who does not understand your wishes for your finances. The court process can be expensive and time-consuming, and it can create tension between your loved ones.

How to get a Nevada power of attorney

Follow these steps:

Understand how a POA works in Nevada

A power of attorney is a legal document by which one person (the principal) gives authority to another person (the agent or attorney-in-fact) to act in the principal’s place. Your agent’s actions and decisions will be legally binding on you when they use your power of attorney.

In Nevada, there are two main types of powers of attorney. A power of attorney concerns financial affairs, real estate, and personal matters. A power of attorney for health care allows an agent to make health care decisions for you. You can purchase a power of attorney above, or go to our page on health care directives and living wills to learn more about a power of attorney for health care.

There are several types of powers of attorney:

  • general power of attorney gives your agent broad powers.
  • limited power of attorney gives your agent authority to do specific acts.
  • durable power of attorney remains effective when you become incapacitated.
  • nondurable power of attorney terminates when you become incapacitated.
  • springing power of attorney is not effective until a future date or event, such as incapacity.

Select an agent

Your power of attorney agent must be somebody you trust to protect your money and property. You should also select successor agents to serve if your original choice is unavailable or unable to serve. For example, married individuals often select their spouse as their agent and another family member or friend as their successor agent.

Choose how much power to give your agent

How much authority you give your agent is a personal choice. If you want your agent to act for you when you are incapacitated, consider giving them broad powers. If you limit your agent’s authority too much, they may have to ask a court for permission to act when an unexpected circumstance arises.

Get a power of attorney form

There is no need to create a power of attorney from scratch. You can use a reliable form that complies with Nevada law. We offer easy-to-complete power of attorney forms tailored to Nevada’s laws.

Sign your power of attorney document

In Nevada, you must sign and date your power of attorney or direct another adult to sign it in your presence if you are unable to sign. You should acknowledge it before a notary public because a notarized signature is presumed to be genuine in Nevada.

You can either have two adults who know you personally witness the signing or acknowledge your signature before a notary public. One of the two witnesses cannot be your relative or entitled to inherit from you when you die.

Deliver your power of attorney to the right people

After you sign your power of attorney, give it to your agents. This will allow them to prove they have authority to act for you. You also can give your power of attorney to businesses you want your agent to deal with. Finally, keep copies of your power of attorney in a safe space.

You may want to speak with a lawyer if:

  • You don’t know who to choose as your agent
  • You want to use a POA for Medicaid planning
  • You want to discuss which powers you should give your agent
  • You want legal review of your completed power of attorney

Nevada power of attorney common questions

Nevada offers free sample forms in their statutes, and you can find free forms from other sources online. Be careful using free forms from unreliable sources. They are not guaranteed to follow current Nevada law and may be invalid.

Under Nevada law, you do not need a lawyer to make a power of attorney. If you are comfortable filling out a form and are comfortable with your choice of agent, you can use our power of attorney forms (scroll up to get started).

If you want legal advice from an attorney, you can hire an estate planning attorney licensed in Nevada to review your completed forms or to create powers of attorney for you.
