A Delaware power of attorney is a legal form that allows an individual to transfer specific powers and authority to another person. The person transferring their authority, also known as the “principal,” must choose a trusted individual such as their spouse or family member to act as their agent. There is no need to record the power of attorney with any government office once the form is signed. The agent may then begin to sign and act on behalf of the principal as designated in the document.
