Powers of Attorney &
Enduring Guardianship

At John C. Palmieri Solicitor we can assist you in preparing or cancelling a Power of Attorney and Enduring Guardianship.

Powers of Attorney 

  • In New South Wales a Power of Attorney is used to appoint someone to make financial decisions on your behalf such as selling your house or operating  your bank accounts

  • A Power of Attorney can be made by anyone over the age of 18 who has the capacity to understand the nature and consequences of the document, who makes the decisions in the document of their own free will and who can communicate clearly what those decisions are.

  • You need to appoint someone you trust to make the right decisions.  You can appoint more than one person if you wish, and you can specify exactly how they make their decision - jointly or seperately.  For Power of Attorney, make sure that the person you appoint has the necessary skills to deal with your finances.

  • A Power or Attorney can be revoked or changed but his must be carried out in a legally binding way.  Please ensure you seek legal advice.

Enduring Guardianship

  • Appointment of Enduring Guardians is a legal document used to appoint someone to make health and living arrangement decisions on your behalf.

  • Whilst a Power of Attorney document deals with financial matters, the appointment of an enduring guardian is a legal document whereby you grant the right to another person to make decisions on your behalf in regards to your health, lifestyle and living arrangements. 

  • An Enduring Guardian comes into effect when you have lost the ability to make decisions necessary to carry out your wishes.

  • An Enduring Guardianship can be revoked or changed but his must be carried out in a legally binding way.  Please ensure you seek legal advice.
