Free Indiana Power of Attorney Forms

An Indiana power of attorney is a legal record that an adult can create to grant certain rights and powers to somebody else who they trust. Suppose that you have a vehicle and need to register it but do not want to deal with it by yourself. With a specific POA template, you can assign a representative who can substitute and act for you.

We have developed the basic and brief guidelines about all POA forms that you can draft in Indiana. Alongside legal information, you will also get PDF templates and links to download forms offered by the local government: a POA for Health Care Decisions and Appointment of Health Care Representative, a Parental Power of Attorney, Form 1948 for vehicles, and Form POA-1 for taxes.
