Power of Attorney
Power of Attorney for Gay Couples & Individuals in Atlanta
While domestic partnerships provide gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender couples with many important rights and benefits, a power of attorney must be obtained in order to enjoy many other legal rights that all couples deserve.
Power of Attorney documents in Georgia are legal contracts that LGBT couples can use to grant a domestic partner or any individual of your choosing the ability to make financial, medical, and other important decisions on your behalf. By successfully creating a power of attorney document, gay couples and individuals can ensure that they exercise their right to choose the person who will handle their affairs.
