Power of Attorney
Power of Attorney in Louisiana grants one person to make specific decisions for another, under specific conditions.
There are various reasons why one might grant power of attorney e.g. soldier being deployed, parents who are working overseas, parents on vacation, etc. However, most reasons revolve around the possible incapacitation of the person granting the power - so that their wishes can be carried out even if they become unable to express them.
We provide Notarized Bills Of Sale, and Title Transfers for:
Affidavit of Small Succession
Affidavit of Small Succession is a legal document that provides a straight-forward process for transferring the estate of a deceased loved one (also called the “decedent” ) to their heirs.
If the decedent died intestate – meaning without a Last Will and Testament – and their estate was relatively debt free, the heirs may opt to sign an Affidavit for Small Succession. This avoids having to get a court order to complete the succession.
The small succession affidavit can be used to close and transfer bank accounts and transfer title of real estate to the heirs. This is a quick and less expensive way to handle transferring assets from a decedent and helps avoid probate court and costs. Be aware though, this procedure cannot be used if the decedent had a last will and testament that requires probate.
The Louisiana-specific form is a resource that makes judicial proceedings (probate) for a small estate under $125,000 un-necessary, so long the conditions outlined by state laws regarding small successions are upheld.

Acts of Donation
Louisiana residents, who want to donate vehicles, real estate, stock, or other property to charities, family members, or other individuals, usually need to fill out an Act of Donation form and have it notarized and witnessed.
All title transfers of motor vehicles in the state through donation must have an Act of Donation of a Movable form in addition to the completed transfer of title.
Donations of real estate in Louisiana, even between spouses, require a written Act of Donation form to clarify that the property was transferred freely without any form of payment in return. Such transfers may be from parents to children or to charities such as conservation groups.
Specific forms cover donations within families and to and from individuals and couples or organizations.
Louisiana does not require an Act of Donation form for some transfers, but the form does prove the intent of the donor and establishes rightful ownership when completed.
Act of Donation forms in the state of Louisiana serve to document the donation of vehicles, real estate, stocks and other property and rights when properly notarized and witnessed.
