Power of Attorney

A power of attorney, which may be general or special, is a contract that allows one person (the mandator) to designate in writing another person (the mandatary) to act on their behalf in the performance of a legal act.

The Special Power of Attorney for the Application for a Certificate or Copy of an Act, accessible on the website of the Directeur de l’état civil (Registrar of Civil Status), is a form by which one person specifically authorizes another to make a document request on their behalf. There is a version of this form for each of the following events: birth, marriage or civil union and death. As additional checks will be required when processing the application, this option should only be used as a last resort.

General powers of attorney drawn up with the assistance of legal counsel must expressly mention the possibility of requesting documents from the Directeur de l’état civil. In the absence of such mention, additional justification and proof may be required.
