Do you know what the requirements are for a valid Power of Attorney in Kentucky? In July 2020, a number of laws went into effect for the state of Kentucky. Among the important changes to the law was an amendment to the requirements for executing a new Power of Attorney.

Previously, a 2018 amendment to KRS 457.050 required that a Power of Attorney be signed by the Principal (the person granting powers to another), two disinterested witnesses, and have the Principal’s signature notarized.

This requirement has been rolled back, and the Power of Attorney now need only be signed by the Principal and notarized. If you have questions about this change to the Power of Attorney law, or other questions about Powers of Attorney generally, please feel free to contact our office at 📱502.205.9005.
