Nowadays, it is extremely common for individuals to arrange a power of attorney to safeguard their welfare and estate in the event that they lose the mental capacity to make decisions. A power of attorney is a legal document that assigns the power to make decisions on your behalf to a friend, family member, or someone you trust.
Giving you peace of mind for the future, we are on hand to provide all the necessary advice and services, helping you to select and assign a suitable power of attorney. This includes registering your decision with the Office of the Public Guardian (Scotland).
Granted by the court, a guardianship and intervention order is usually requested by the Local Authority or the family of an individual who no longer has the capacity to make decisions about their finances and welfare. Our solicitors have the expertise and experience to assist with these applications and provide advice where needed.
A will is a legal document that specifies how you wish your property and estate to be distributed upon your death. Beyond distributing assets, your will specifies the individual that you wish to have the responsibility of managing your estate after you die, and it can also state who you wish to be a guardian of any children.
An advance directive, or “living will” is a legal document that typically allows you to stipulate what medical treatment you do or do not want in the event that you are unable to communicate your wishes. It also specifies the circumstances in which you would wish medical treatment to be withdrawn.
