Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Power of Attorney and when should I make one?

A Power of Attorney (POA) is a document that designates someone to make decisions on your behalf if you are unable. Many people choose to make a power of attorney if they have a health condition which may render them unable to make sound decisions in the future.

Who can be my attorney?

Your attorney can be anyone you trust if they are over 18 years and are of sound mind. This can include your spouse or partner, a family member, friend, colleague, or solicitor.

What happens if I don’t?

If you don’t have a POA in place and are unable to make decisions or control your own affairs, you may have to apply to the court for a Gaurdianship order.
