Powers of Attorney and Guardianship

A power of attorney is a useful tool that can be fully explained to you upon contact with Sharee Cassel & Associates.

Financial decisions

If used on a temporary basis, a power of attorney can allow someone you trust to make financial decisions on your behalf while you are away.   You will then be giving this person a limited power of attorney over a specifed time.

However, if you are concerned about your future incapacity, you may wish to appoint an attorney under an enduring power of attorney so that this person can make long term financial decisions on your behalf.

Lifestyle decisions

If you are concerned about your future incapacity and want to arrange for a close friend or family member to make lifestyle decisions about your future then you may wish for the appointment of this person as an enduring guardian.  The type of decisions this person can make on your behalf may concern where you should live and what medical treatment and services you should receive.

But the appointment of an attorney or guardian are important decisions as they may have far reaching consequences.  Such decisions should only be made after the most careful consultation with your solicitor.  We at Sharee Cassel & Associates understand this and will assist you in making a sound decision for your future.
