What is substituted judgment?	 	
Substituted judgment can be used if you need help making decisions about your care or 	
property.  There are several types of substituted judgment you can choose.  The best type of 
substituted judgment is one that allows you to be as independent as possible.	 	
 
 
What are the types of substituted judgment?	 	
There are many types of substituted 	judgment you can choose.  The different types 	
include: health care power of attorney, representative payee, power of attorney, durable power 
of attorney, conservatorship, and guardianship.  The types are listed in order from allowing you 
the most independe	nce (health care power of attorney) to the least independence 	
(guardianship).	 	
   
 
 
 
 	
What is a durable power of attorney?	 	
A durable power of attorney is a paper that creates a relationship between a	 “principal	” and an 	
“attorney in fact	.”  The principal is the person who needs help in making decisions about 	
finances or property.  The principal chooses an attorney in fact to make decisions for the 
principal.  The attorney in fact makes sure that the pr	incipal’s needs are met.  For example, 	
Jane (the 	principal	) may appoint Joe (the 	attorney in fact	) to make decisions about her finances 	
or property if she cannot make those decisions herself.  Neb. Rev. Stat. §30	-3402 (2006).  	 	
 
 
When is a durable power of	 attorney used?	 	
A durable power of attorney is used when you cannot make decisions regarding your 	
finances or property.  The attorney in fact will make those decisions for you.  The attorney in fact 
can begin to make decisions for you when you become disab	led or incapacitated.  This is called 	
a Present Durable Power of Attorney. If you already have a durable power of attorney, the 
attorney in fact can continue to make decisions for you even if you become disabled or 
incapacitated.  This is called a Continge	nt Durable Power of Attorney. The type of durable

power of attorney will depend on how you write it. (See “Power of Attorney” form (attached)).  
Neb. Rev. Stat. §§30	-2665; 30	-2666 (2006).	 	
 
 	
How is a durable power of attorney created?	 	
To create a durable 	power of attorney, you must choose a person to be your attorney in 	
fact.  You must state the person’s name in writing and you must also have the words:	 	
 	“This power of attorney shall not be affected by subsequent disability or incapacity of the 
principal,” 	or	  	
 	
 	“This power of attorney shall become effective upon the disability or incapacity of the 
principal,” 	or	  	
 	
 	Other words that show you want the attorney in fact to make decisions for you if you 
become disabled or incapacitated.  	 	
 	
Using these words will m	ake sure that the durable power of attorney will be effective even 	
if you are disabled.  Neb. Rev. Stat. §30	-2665 (2006).	 	
 
 
How does a durable power of attorney work?	 	
A durable power of attorney works much like a power of attorney (see “Power of 	
Attorney” 	material), except that it will be in effect even if you are disabled or incapacitated.  Neb. 	
Rev. Stat. §30	-2666 (2006).	 	
 
 
What are the duties of a durable power of attorney?	 	
The attorney in fact may sometimes be appointed as a 	fiduciary	.  A 	fiduciary	 is s	omeone 	
who is supposed to make decisions in your best interests	.  Examples of a fiduciary are a 	
conservator, guardian, or other person you choose who is in charge of managing your finances 
or property.  	 	
 
 
How does a durable power of attorney end?	 	
A durabl	e power of attorney can end in one of two ways:	 	
 	When you die; 	 	
 	If you cancel it and you are competent.  When you cancel it, it becomes a matter of public 
record and the durable power of attorney ends.  Neb. Rev. Stat. §§49	-1523; 49	-1560 	
(2006).	 	
 	
If the attorney in fact makes decisions for you without knowing that you have died, the 	
decision will still be in effect.  Neb. Rev. Stat. §30	-2668 (2006).
