Power of Attorney
A power of attorney may be useful or necessary, especially if the service member will be absent from home for extended periods of time. A power of attorney may be tailored and limited to accommodate particular individual needs.
There are two types of powers of attorneys, general and special. General powers of attorney are powerful documents and should only be used in limited circumstances. A judge advocate can provide advice on whether to get a general or special power of attorney. In most cases, a special power of attorney can be drafted that will protect the maker and authorize the holder to complete all required business. If you need a power of attorney before transferring, contact your local Legal Assistance Office. No appointment is needed to obtain a power of attorney in Bahrain.
