Durable (General) Power of Attorney – Alabama
A durable power of attorney differs from a non-durable one by remaining in force even when the principal can no longer act for themselves.
Because this form accords broad authority to an agent to manage the principal’s affairs, it is also referred to as a general power of attorney.
