Power of Attorney as provided for lawyers in Turkey must be issued at a notary public’s office in either the country of Turkey itself (within its legal jurisdiction) or at the Turkish Consulate in foreign countries. Advocatory General Power of Attorney (a power of attorney where a lawyer acts on behalf of a client) has a standard format and content set out in a fixed format ready prepared for you in the offices of the Notary Public or the Consulate. However, you may wish to vary the content of the Power of Attorney in accordance with your needs to give explicit power to the proxy in cases such as the buying or selling of property and/or divorce. Furthermore, if you are outside of Turkey and cannot physically attend the Consulate Office nearest you, then the relevant Power of Attorney may be issued by the notary of the country in which you find yourself. However, in that case, the Power of Attorney must be stamped with the Apostille Seal by requirement of the Hague Convention in international law. It must also be translated into English by an official permitted to do that by the Court in that country.
