Do I Really Need a Power of Attorney in New Hampshire?
You are not legally required to have a power of attorney, but creating one can ensure your wishes are met if you become incapacitated. If you want to choose the person who will make decisions about your finances and personal affairs, you need a power of attorney.
If you do not have a power of attorney when you become incapacitated, a New Hampshire probate court most likely will intervene and appoint a guardian to make decisions for you. The court process can be expensive for you and stressful and time-consuming for your loved ones. A court also might appoint someone you would not choose to be your guardian.
Powers of attorney also are necessary if you need someone to make decisions for you when you are healthy. For example, many people use a limited power of attorney to allow a financial adviser to manage their investments.
Finally, if you want someone to make health care decisions when you are unable to make them for yourself, you will need an advance directive (sometimes called a health care directive or durable power of attorney for health care).
