Powers of attorney can be specific or general, for a limited or indefinite time, simple or complex.  Powers of attorney should not be signed until the principal fully understands the nature and scope of the powers being granted to his or her agent, and agrees that those powers will further the principal’s current goals and purposes at a future time (known or unknown) when such authority may be needed.
