PROVIDING FOR FUTURE INCAPACITY
A person may consider preparing an enduring power of attorney and an enduring guardianship to ensure that if they experience an incapacitating illness or injury, decisions concerning their future are decided by someone they trust. Our lawyers can assist you to prepare an enduring power of attorney so that you can nominate a person to carry out financial transactions on your behalf. Our lawyers can also assist you in preparing an enduring guardianship so that you can nominate a person to make decisions on your behalf about such matters as where you will live and what healthcare you will have including medical or dental treatment. The enduring power of attorney and/or enduring guardianship can be executed now but does not need to come into effect until a time decided by you in the document. Such a time may include an event which results in the inability to make decisions on your own.
The circumstances of every case are different, which requires tailored legal advice for each individual. Our specialist team of lawyers are highly knowledgeable and experienced in the field of wills, estate planning and dispute resolution. Contact us today for a free consultation.
