Enduring Power of Attorney: What they are and why they are important

Your Enduring Power of Attorney (also known as an EPOA) is much more than just a piece of paper—it gives someone power to make decisions about your health and/or your finances as if that person was you.  For this reason, our team of lawyers applies its many years of Estate planning experience and expertise to ensure your EPOA is prepared correctly and clearly conveys your wishes to your Attorney.

EPOAs, contact our team of legal experts at Geldard Sherrington Lawyers in Hervey Bay.

When should I make an Enduring Power of Attorney?

All adults who are capable of making an EPOA should have one.  Most people think about making their wishes known for after they pass away via their Will, but people often don’t think about what will happen if they lose the ability to make decisions for themselves whilst they are living.  This is when an EPOA is vital.

If you want to ensure that a person (or people) you trust can make decisions for you if you become unable to make them yourself, you should contact Geldard Sherrington Lawyers to enquire about making an EPOA today.

How long does an EPOA last?

As the name suggests, an Enduring Power of Attorney can endure for your lifetime.  Unless you change your mind about who you have appointed as your Attorney/s, or you wish to revise the instructions provided for your Attorney/s in the EPOA, you may only ever need to make one EPOA.

How Geldard Sherrington Lawyers can help

Making an EPOA can be a simple process.  It’s often done at the same time you make or review your Will, but can be done separately.

For a low fixed fee, the highly experienced team of lawyers at Geldard Sherrington can guide you through the steps to make an EPOA.
