Hi - I practice in Tennessee.


I would certainly recommend that you have an attorney in your area draft this for you as the document needs to be filed with the chancery court clerk as well.


However, you can find generic, non-specific POA's online. But, it's worth the money to get a specific document drafted that suits your needs.

If I get one on line and follow the instructions it will be legal though?
Expert:  Roger replied 6 years ago.
Yes. But, you will need to get it filed with the chancery clerk of the county where the person lives once it's been signed and notarized.
