Do you have questions about the different types of powers of attorney that can be established In Minnesota? A power of attorney is a legal document that allows you to assign an agent to act on your behalf when you are not able to. It can be a complicated process, and it always requires the expertise of someone with a legal background. The legal team at Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn has the ability to ensure that the power of attorney you wish to create conforms to all applicable Minnesota law and serves your best interests. Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn are located in Coon Rapids, Minnesota in the Riverdale shopping center.
There are six types of powers of attorney:
- Durable (financial) power of attorney

- Minor child power of attorney
- Real estate power of attorney
You may need help with one or more powers of attorney, and Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn is able to help you with any and all of them. We possess the experience and expertise in Minnesota law to provide the legal assistance you need when dealing with the most complicated matters pertaining to powers of attorney. When created properly, Minnesota power of attorney allows the person in possession of that power to respond to financial, health care, child care, and real-estate oriented matters when you are unable to do so. If you become incapacitated or for other reasons cannot make important decisions, it is important to have gone through the process of creating a power of attorney to ensure that your interests are given the advocacy you want.
Establishing a Power of Attorney in Minnesota
Remember that power of attorney can manifest differently depending on the circumstances under which it is created. For example, if the power of attorney is initiated for financial representation, it is likely the power of attorney will fall into the categories of durable, general, or limited power of attorney. But if the issue pertains to the creation of a living will, the power of attorney will be categorized as an advance directive which addresses end of life choices. Parents often wish to create powers of attorney to account for decisions made on behalf of their minor children should the parents become incapacitated or otherwise unable to make those decisions themselves.
Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn can also help you feel more confident that the person to whom you are giving power of attorney is the best option for you. In some circumstances, it may seem logical to lend power of attorney to the person you love most in the world. But on closer reflection, and with assistance from an expert, you may decide that the power of attorney is best placed in the trust of someone with a more specific combination of skills, such as financial astuteness, honesty, and trustworthiness, or knowledge of child development, honesty, and trustworthiness.
