The North Carolina General Statues Chapter 32A states how to legally create a Durable Power of Attorney
Below is a slideshow presentation I have created to help explain part of the North Carolina General Statutes that explains what is a Durable Power of Attorney. It is important to have on record who you want making financial decisions for you if you are unable to do so for yourself. Having a Durable Power of Attorney document allows you to express your wishes of who can make decisions about your finances and your property.
This is not legal advice and other states have different statutes governing intestate distribution. You should always consult a local lawyer for local advice on your estate.
