In Kansas, it is not difficult to create a power of attorney so you can have someone to take care of your finances or health care issues if you become sick or injured. Power of attorney forms are designed to be simple for you to fill out, but you need two witnesses or a notary to sign the form. You do not need to have a lawyer present, but one can help explain why you would want to use this document and help you create one. In Kansas, there is a general power of attorney, which gives an agent broad powers over your property, and a durable power of attorney for health care decisions, which authorizes a health care representative to make decisions regarding your medical treatment.
