Can I have a durable power of attorney that becomes effective only in the future?

Since 2011, the law has changed, and any document that you sign called a durable power of attorney is immediately effective upon signing, and your attempt to make it conditional or effective in the future is going to make that document invalid.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
