Wills and power of attorney

If you need to appoint someone else to have the temporary authority to sign legal documents on your behalf, you can consider granting them a general power of attorney. A lasting power of attorney goes further, to deal with the situation when you may no longer have the mental capacity to make your own decisions, and a living will can define how you want to be treated medically in this scenario. Ensuring that a valid last will and testament is in place will help to ensure that your wishes are carried out and your family remain protected after your death.
