My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Michigan
Does the durable power of attorney in Michigan apply to mental health issues as well as physical issues?
My father asked me to sign one because I'm not married. If I were to have an accident and become incapacitated he wants to be able to make medical decisions for me as well as financial
My fear is that it will apply to mental health issues. I receive disability for ptsd/bipolar. I have been hospitalized in the past though never involuntary. I have never had a guardian. It seems with the durable power of attorney if two doctors agree you are incapacitated then your power of attorney can make medical decisions for you If there is a way to ensure its only for physical issues I'm fine with signing it. If it applies to mental health there is no way I will sign it. I have tried researching it online and can't find a conclusive answer.
Thanks for any help
