There are a number of cases in which the designation of an attorney in fact can be helpful. This is an individual who has been granted authority by way of a power of attorney to act on behalf of another person. In some cases, this authority is granted for a specified period of time, while in other instance, 在该特权被撤销之前,该个人实际上可以充当律师. There are a number of tasks that this job may entail, 以及在一些情况下,指定一个人可能是对个人的最大利益.

事实上,聘请律师的目的往往是在业主一段时间内无法进行金融业务. This may involve the authority to manage property, make investments, or execute documents on behalf of a person or an organization. Typically, 个人和个人之间的协议将设定被授予的权力范围的具体参数.

For example, 事实上,律师可能被授予访问银行账户的权限,以支付每月账单或管理投资组合,而无需就所述事务将如何进行咨询任何人. 对于一个人来说,同时有权力的开始日期和结束日期是很常见的. In some cases, there will not be an ending date specified, 但人们始终认为,协议的发起者有能力在任何时候撤销授权.

事实上,大多数司法管辖区对律师的资格要求很少. Generally, 被指定人必须达到法定年龄以履行协议中规定的责任. It is not necessary to be a practicing attorney in order to fill this role, 虽然当有需要时,律师为有价值的客户承担这种责任并不罕见.

个人可以因暂时患病而选择指定一名律师, 或者个人计划在国外待上一段时间. The person can continue to make sure that financial commitments are met, and that financial resources are managed properly. In many instances, an attorney in fact will render some form of accounting, such as a periodic status report. However, unless this is specifically addressed in the agreement, he or she is under no legal obligation to do so.

Does authority of the attorney in fact cease when the principal dies?

Please, if you're not a lawyer, don't advise others on legal questions. Practicing law without a license is illegal in every U.S. jurisdiction.

From reading the comments, 许多人混淆了“实际律师”和“法律律师”的概念." An attorney-in-fact is just a fancy word for "agent.“任何人都可以指定任何人作为代理人,处理金融/健康/商业事务,并代表他们作出决定. 许多州都有im游戏授权委托书(授予代理的文件)的正式法规要求,在你假定承担任何人的代理角色之前,你应该知道这些是什么.

律师(attorney-at-law)是指在该司法管辖区获得执业资格的律师,可以为客户提供咨询,也可以在法庭或行政机构前代表客户出庭. In most cases, 这意味着这个人必须从一个认可的机构获得法律学位(大部分时间是法学博士),并通过律师资格考试, as well as have the "moral character" required to practice law. Only an attorney-at-law can represent you in court (and in most cases, before an administrative agency).

Attorney-in-fact should be hyphenated, like mother-in-law.

@anon68513:我认为一个人理论上可以授权任何人作为他或她在法律诉讼中的律师(包括他或她自己), 但法官和其他专业律师可能会强烈反对这种想法. 这一行有很多程序和技巧,一个未经训练的“事实上的律师”是不会知道的, so there's every chance that person could really cause some damage. 这就是为什么米兰达权利允许法庭为贫穷的被告指定律师.

However, 可能在某些情况下,任何熟悉案件事实的人都能在法庭上提出比案件中提到的人更好的案情或论点. A person who has extreme difficulty with public speaking, for instance, 可能想要指定一个朋友或亲戚作为律师,以确保他或她的紧张情绪不会影响事实的陈述.

I am not a legal professional, 但我认为,事实上,作为另一个人的律师必须得到法官的认可. 法官可能不会接受第三方的证词,如果他或她觉得当事人能够在没有帮助的情况下陈述他或她的故事. 如果法官质疑律师在事实安排中的有效性,有一份签字的授权书并不是一个坏主意.

Can an attorney in fact sell land?

律师可以帮助你解决法律问题,在法庭上代表你,同意你的要求,你需要签字和你所代表的人的签字.

anon68513

i have a stupid question since i am not a attorney/lawyer.

can i represent a person i.e. 我的朋友或亲戚因为交通违章在地方法院受审,或者在当地法院受审,如果他想让我请不起律师,又不想让法院指定的律师?

他有法律依据签署一份委托书,让我在地方法官或法官面前代表他吗? it would seem he does but is this true or not?

If there is a notarized last will and testament in existence, does the authority of the Attorney-in-Fact cease when the principal dies?

When I sign for my parent as his Attorney-in-Fact, do I sign his name followed by a slash and then sign my name? What is the procedure for operating as an attorney-in-fact? 如果有遗嘱,当被代理人死亡时,事实代理人的权力是否就停止了?

I will have power of attorney for my siblings in the sale of real estate. At the closing how do I sign their names? Do I sign their name followed by a slash and then sign my name? What is the procedure for operating as an attorney-in-fact?

Does the authority of the attorney in fact cease when the principal dies?

anon36344

My attorney in fact ceased the day/hour/my mother passed. 问:如果你被父母选为他们的授权律师,并有证人和公证人在场, all paperwork in order, 法官能否因为你的兄弟姐妹对被选中的人不满意而裁定你的授权律师无效?

委托书中的“律师”和“事实上的律师”是否有任何区别?
