EXPERIENCE AND TRUST

We can help you make the tough decisions

An Enduring Power of Attorney is a legal document under which you appoint someone (called an Attorney) to look after you and your interests in the event that you are no longer legally capable to do so yourself.

Such decisions relate to financial decisions and personal/health decisions.

Duffy Lawyers can also provide you with New South Wales documentation comprising a General Power of Attorney and an Enduring Guardian.

What is a power of attorney

Understanding Powers of Attorney

There are two types of powers of attorney:

A General Power of Attorney is given to someone to make financial decisions on your behalf when you are absent, for example, if you are overseas and need someone else to pay your bills.

An Enduring Power of Attorney is given to someone to make personal/health and/or financial decisions on your behalf, even if you lose the capacity to make decisions for yourself. You may not always be able to make decisions when you need to, for example, you may be too ill to make choices about your medical treatment or where you should have the power to make decisions in your interests and to sign all the necessary legal documents. There are some limitations (discussed below) on the types of decisions your enduring attorney will be able to make for you.
