A Florida power of attorney gives an individual, a group of people, a financial institution, or a business, known as an “agent” or “attorney-in-fact,” the legal capacity to act as a proxy for a person, known as the “principal.” The document grants an agent the power to manage certain personal, business, or legal affairs on your behalf and make important decisions when you cannot.
