HOW MANY WITNESSES ARE REQUIRED ON DURABLE POA IN THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA?

Fayetteville, NC |

DURABLE POWER OF ATTORNEY

Attorney Answers 2


  1. There is no requirement pursuant to the North Carolina statutes that there be any witnesses on a Durable Power of Attorney. The maker's signature needs to be notarized. A HealthCare Power of attorney requires two witnesses.

    The information is made available by Sabrina Winters, Attorney at Law, (publisher) for educational purposes only as well as to give you general information and a general understanding of the law, not to provide specific legal advice. There is no attorney client relationship between you and Sabrina Winters, Attorney at Law. The information provided should not be used as a substitute for competent legal advice from a licensed professional attorney retained in your state.


  2. There is no requirement about the number of witnesses for a Durable POA in North Carolina. The signature of the person who is making the Durable POA must be notarized. That is the only requirement in terms of signatures. If you have reason to believe that the POA of a family member or relative was improper you should speak to an attorney in North Carolina. Good luck with this issue.
