An Arizona power of attorney is a document that allows an individual (principal) to appoint an agent as legal authority to manage their property, finances, or medical affairs.
The “principal” is the person granting the powers, and the “agent” is the person acting on the principal’s behalf. For your document to be legally binding, it must comply with Arizona state laws.
