Frequently Asked Questions

What is meant by "governing law"?A Power of Attorney is governed by the law of the jurisdiction where the actions of the attorney will be performed. Normally, this is the place in which the property of the donor is located. Therefore, it is not a good idea to appoint an attorney who resides in a different jurisdiction, unless the property or assets you want the attorney to deal with are also in the different jurisdiction. If you anticipate that your attorney will be acting in more than one jurisdiction, you should probably make separate powers of attorney for each jurisdiction.

Examples:
  • If your bank accounts and other property are located in the jurisdiction where you live, you will want to choose that jurisdiction for the governing law, and appoint an attorney who lives in the same jurisdiction.
  • If you live in one jurisdiction but have a bank account or other property someplace else, and you want an attorney to deal with that property, you will want to choose the place where the property is located as the governing law, and appoint an attorney who is located in (or is willing to travel to) the same jurisdiction as the property.
