Why should you have a Power or Attorney? Many people assume that family members or their next-of-kin will be able to step in and help if they can no longer make decisions on their own. However, simply being a relation is not sufficient to allow someone to manage a loved one’s financial affairs. A power of attorney allows you to appoint someone you trust to act on your behalf if you become unable to manage your affairs. If someone has already lost capacity without a Power of Attorney being in place, a Guardianship order is necessary.  In these circumstances, a court will decide on the most appropriate person to be appointed as Guardian to act in the best interests of the adult with incapacity.

We can help you decide which document is your best suited to your circumstances and, where it is necessary, to prepare for the court action. Please contact us on 01463 795019  to learn more or to book an appointment to meet with us in our Inverness or Thurso offices.
