enduring powers of attorney

Do you need to make your Power of Attorney or change your existing Power of Attorney? Despite the current COVID-19 procedures, you can still make a Power of Attorney and sign it.

When giving Shane McClure instructions for your will, it is his advice that you also give instructions to prepare Enduring Powers of Attorney on your behalf.

Why do you need a power of attorney?
Enduring Powers of Attorney are legal documents that give legal authority for someone to take the following sorts of actions on your behalf:

  • provide for who can run your affairs,
  • pay bills on your behalf,
  • have a say in your medical treatment, or
  • support you, should you be unable to do so yourself.

 

What happens if you don’t have a power of attorney?
As with any legal document, the instructions for these documents can only be given when the person concerned is unaffected, and deemed to have the requisite capacity.

There are a number of factors that come into play for a power of attorney to be valid, such as:

  1. it must be in writing, and ,
  2. witnessed by someone with the appropriate capacity (such as Shane McClure).

 

The Four Types of Powers of Attorney Shane McClure can draft for you are:

  • Enduring Power of Attorney (Medical Treatment);
  • Enduring Power of Attorney (Financial/personal);
  • Supportive Attorney; and
  • General Non-Enduring Power of Attorney.
