Wills and power of attorney

If you need to appoint someone else to have the temporary authority to sign legal documents, or manage your personal affairs, 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 medically treated in this scenario. Ensuring that a valid Last will and testament is in place will help ensure that your wishes are carried out and your family remain protected after your death.
