A Nevada durable power of attorney is a legal document that allows an individual (also known as “the principal “) to appoint someone else (“an agent”) to manage financial matters. The agent must act on behalf and in the principal’s best interest, and their power remains in effect even if the principal becomes incapacitated.
This form is generally used for financial and business matters.
