Power of attorney

What is "Power of Attorney" ? Power of Attorney is sometimes also called letter of attorney, it is basically a legal document which authorizes a person (called agent or attorney) to act on behalf of principal, granter or donor (of the power).

Agent can act on behalf of donor in any legal or business matter. A power of attorney may be oral and whether witnessed or not, will hold up in court, same as if it were in writing. For some purposes, the law requires a power of attorney to be in writing.

Not in some cases this "agent" is also called "attorney-in-fact".
