Power Of Attorney

So much emphasis is placed on ensuring that we all have a valid will when we die! But it's important to know who is going to make decisions about us and our estate while we are still alive!

Since 1998 Queensland legislation has allowed for appointments of Powers of Attorney which ‘endure’ past the time when a person loses the capacity to make their own decisions, and which can cover ‘lifestyle’ decisions as well as financial decisions. A much better system than the decision-making vacuum it replaced, but a system certainly not immune from abuse.

Presented by Suncoast Community Legal Service, this presentation will describe the process, run you through the options available when appointing an Enduring Power of Attorney and suggest ways to help safeguard yourself against potential abuse by attorneys.

• General vs Enduring Powers of Attorney
• Short and Long Form Powers of Attorney
• Witnessing Requirements
