Wills, Power of Attorney & Enduring Guardianship
A Will is a document that sets out your wishes on how and who you want your property to be distributed after you pass away.
A Power of Attorney is a document which gives an authority for a person or persons to deal with your financial affairs.
An Enduring Guardianship is a document which gives an authority for a person or persons to deal with your health, lifestyle and medical decisions when you have lost the mental capacity to do so for yourself.
Everyone should have the above documents regardless of the stage of life that they are in.
Why do you need a lawyer?
You can obtain a free will planning kit and fill it out yourself but will it be right and will it be upheld in Court?
A lawyer will ensure that the Will, Power of Attorney and/or Enduring Guardianship is drafted correctly. Further, they should ensure that you are adequately advised of any possible contests against your Will and any fights that may ensue as a result of your wishes.
