When completing a Will, your legal adviser needs to consider whether an appropriate Enduring Power of Attorney and Guardianship document should be included in your estate arrangements.
Whether you are single, married, de facto, or have a young family, maybe you are approaching retirement, or elderly and retired, whatever your stage of life, there are so many important reasons to have a Will, Enduring Power of Attorney and Guardianship document professionally prepared.
Taylor & Scott Lawyers can guide you through your options and explain in plain language the processes involved in nominating an Attorney under a Power of Attorney (this is someone who can make legal decisions on your behalf eg: if you become incapacitated).
Appointing an Attorney can be a difficult process and it is vital this process is explained to you in a clear and unambiguous manner.
Taylor & Scott can ensure the procedure of appointing a Power of Attorney is made carefully and sensitively and that you feel in control during this decision-making process.
We can also advise individuals who have been nominated as an Attorney under a Power of Attorney on their obligations and duties when making financial and legal decisions on behalf of someone who is unable to make their own decisions. We are also able to advise a Guardian under Enduring Guardianship of their obligations.
