FAQs on this topic are provided in a booklet. This booklet is for people who have been asked to be an Attorney under someone’s Enduring Power of Attorney. It explains what is involved in being an Attorney. It is divided into two sections:
- a question and answer section touching on issues to consider before you accept the job as well as common questions and examples; and
- a checklist section that helps guide you when the donor—the person who gave you Power of Attorney—loses capacity.
This booklet gives general information only, not legal advice. It is not a do-it-yourself guide. For that, you need a more detailed self-help publication or legal advice. See the last few pages of this booklet for information on where to get this help.
