Legal Question in Elder Law in Arizona

I am filling out a Durable power of attorney form . I noticed that every form except the one that i bought had successer agents. Am i allowed to add a page that has 2 successer agents in my form? i bought it at "Find legal".

I do not recommend that you use any "forms" because of the very question that you have asked. It may cost more money to have an attorney prepare your powers of attorney, but you will have a valid and enforceable document when you need it.

You may name successor agents to act under your power of attorney, and I recommend that you name some, because you never know when the first agent you named, may be unable to serve on your behalf, and if you are unable to make a new power of attorney, you or someone, on your behalf, will have to go to court to be appointed guardian and/or conservator for you.
