Notarization of Power of Attorney
Notarization is a process where a notary public, who is a certified official appointed by the government, verifies the authenticity of a document.
Notarization is used to prevent fraud and to provide a level of assurance that the document is authentic and legally binding. Notarization is often required for legal documents such as vital records certificates, contracts, deeds, and affidavits, as well as for other documents that require verification of authenticity, such as passports or academic transcripts.

Apostille for Power of Attorney
An apostille is a type of authentication that verifies the authenticity of a public document for use in another country. The apostille is a certificate that is attached to the original document by a competent authority, such as a government agency, and serves as proof that the document is genuine.
The apostille was established by the Hague Convention in 1961, which is an international treaty that allows for the simplified legalization of documents between member countries. Apostilles are typically used for documents such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, and academic transcripts that need to be recognized in another country for legal or administrative purposes.
You can order a Power of Attorney with an official Apostille.
Translation of Power of Attorney
An official sworn translation is a translation of a document that has been certified as accurate and complete by a sworn translator. A sworn translator is a professional who has been authorized by a government agency or a court to provide official translations of documents.
The purpose of an official sworn translation is to provide a translation of a document that has the same legal validity and effect as the original document. The sworn translator is required to swear an oath that they have translated the document accurately and completely, and that they are competent to translate the language of the original document into the target language.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Power of Attorney?
A power of attorney is a legal document that authorizes someone to act on behalf of another person in certain situations. The person who grants the power of attorney is known as the "principal," and the person who is authorized to act on their behalf is known as the "agent" or "attorney-in-fact."
The power of attorney can be general, giving the agent broad authority to act on behalf of the principal in various matters, or it can be specific, limited to certain types of transactions or situations. Some examples of situations where a power of attorney may be used include managing finances, buying or selling property, signing legal documents, or making healthcare decisions.
A power of attorney can be temporary or permanent, depending on the needs of the principal. It can also be revoked or changed at any time, as long as the principal is mentally competent to do so.
It is important to note that a power of attorney does not give the agent unlimited power or authority to act on behalf of the principal. The agent is still bound by legal and ethical responsibilities to act in the best interest of the principal and to follow any instructions given in the power of attorney document.
What types of Power of Attorney are there?
There are several types of power of attorney:
- General Power of Attorney: This type of power of attorney gives the agent broad authority to act on behalf of the principal in various matters, including financial, legal, and business affairs.
- Limited Power of Attorney: This type of power of attorney grants the agent the authority to act on behalf of the principal for specific purposes or a limited period.
- Durable Power of Attorney: This type of power of attorney remains in effect even if the principal becomes incapacitated or unable to make decisions.
- Springing Power of Attorney: This type of power of attorney only takes effect if and when a specific event or condition occurs, such as the principal becoming incapacitated.
- Medical Power of Attorney: This type of power of attorney gives the agent the authority to make medical decisions on behalf of the principal in case of incapacity.
- Financial Power of Attorney: This type of power of attorney grants the agent the authority to manage the principal's financial affairs in case of incapacity.
Do I need a lawyer to create a power of attorney?

Is your Power of Attorney valid worldwide?
Yes. In most countries, including those that are signatories to the Hague Convention, a properly executed power of attorney will be recognized and enforced through the use of an Apostille, which is a form of authentication that verifies the authenticity of the document. This can make it easier for the principal's agent to carry out the necessary actions on their behalf, such as signing legal documents, accessing bank accounts, or making medical decisions.
