Do I need a Power of Attorney?

A Power of Attorney can provide great peace of mind – you can relax and enjoy yourself knowing that if something unexpected happens there is security a measure that has been put in place to protect you.

Most people choose their spouse/partner or a responsible friend or family member as their Attorney and some people choose more than one person.

Like a Will, it is advisable to review your Power of Attorney every few years, as the Donee of the power may no longer be a friend or may have moved overseas, or the Attorney may no longer wish to continue in the nominated role.

Do spouses/partners require a separate Power of Attorney?

Yes, each spouse/partner must have their own Power of Attorney document.
