Powers of Attorney are becoming more popular and are considered by many medical and legal professionals as essential.
A Power of Attorney gives authority to another individual or individuals, appointed by you, to ‘step into your shoes’ by dealing with your financial and/or welfare affairs in the event that you become incapacitated through illness, old age or as a result of an accident. A Power of Attorney can avoid the need for your loved ones to make an application to the Court, in the event of your incapacity, for a Guardianship Order, which can be highly stressful and, indeed, costly. Putting the proper measures in place while you do have capacity will avoid anxiety, uncertainty and expense at a later date.
