If, because of accident, age or illness, you needed a loved one to make important life decisions for you, we can assist you to create a binding authority that will become effective if you lose your 'legal capacity.'
Broadly speaking, there are 3 categories of decision a person (called an 'attorney' or 'agent') may be called upon to make: financial and business, 'lifestyle' and medical.
If a close family member or friend has lost their legal capacity but has not made an Enduring Power of Attorney or Guardianship, an application on their behalf can be made to VCAT to appoint you or another person as their estate administrator or guardian.
Please contact us for further information and advice.
A General Power of Attorney can delegate your authority to engage in particular transaction or manage your affairs for a fixed period, or until you revoke the power.
Contact us to discuss your Power of Attorney requirements
