Lasting Power of Attorney

Real Life Experiences

WE ADVISED SARAH AND ENSURED THAT THE LASTING POWERS OF ATTORNEY WERE MADE QUICKLY AND WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF HER THREE CHILDREN TO AVOID LATER DISPUTE.

Sarah

Sarah was a widow in her 70’s with three children. One of her children, Peter, lived in the USA. One of her daughters, Karen, lived 200 miles away and her youngest daughter, Wendy, lived nearby. Sarah had always lived a very active life, but had recently started having issues with her memory.

She decided to make lasting powers of attorney, appointing Wendy as her attorney with Karen as her replacement attorney, for both her financial affairs and her healthcare decisions. We advised Sarah and worked with her general practitioner to ensure that the lasting powers of attorney were made quickly and with the knowledge of her three children to avoid later dispute.
