Powers of Attorney/Guardianship
Powers of Attorney / Guardianship
A Power of Attorney gives someone you trust the legal authority to make decisions on your behalf when, for whatever reason, you are no longer able or no longer willing to do so. Whether planning your affairs for infirmity or simply for ease of administration a Power of Attorney may be useful to you. Granting a Power of Attorney now can save expense later when it may be too late to do so.
Where an individual can no longer make decisions for themselves a relative or person with an interest can make a Guardianship Application which is a Court appointment. This authorises a person to act and make decisions on behalf of the adult with incapacity. We can provide legal advice on Powers of Attorney and Guardianship orders.
