Power Of Attorney

According to section 104(1a) of the Guardianship and Administration Act 1990, power of attorney can be described as a legal document which grants a donee the power and liability required to take decisions for the donor in the required circumstances if the donor is unable to take decisions for themselves. The decision can vary from certain financial matters of the organization that the donor has been involved with or may be the required medical services. The individual receiving the power of attorney has a variety of power to implement, so it is recommended to the donor that they should choose the individual properly otherwise misuse of a power can always lead to unexpected situations.

It is very important for the individual willing to donate their power of attorney to have a proper idea about Will and power of attorney. Consulting a professional attorney saves time with the legal issues that are involved in the process.

Types Of Power Of Attorney

According to 104(1)(b) the donor must declare under the supervision of the Court that whether the power of the donee individual should exceed the legal capacity or only be in power of the legal capacity if somehow the individual lose the power of legal capacity under the State Administrative Tribunal. Power of Attorney will not be valid until the process is done and signed under the presence of minimum two witnesses and also a statement of acceptance.

    • Immediate Enduring Power of Attorney comes into effect immediately in the period when the individual donating the power of attorney looses all the legal capacity. The assigned individual in the power of attorney comes into play to take all the required decisions involved right from that moment.
    • Dormant Enduring Power of Attorney comes into play at a certain period of time when the individual does not have any power to take legal decision. These generally take place for a time period when the individual is not able to take the decisions and soon goes away when they get back the power.
