Powers of attorney and appointments of enduring guardian
The laws differ in each state about the appointment of attorneys or guardians. Tucker Partners can ensure appropriate documentation is in place when decisions are made on your behalf in the event of your incapacity or absence. It is imperative that power of attorney documents are carefully drafted to reflect the person’s individual needs. In Victoria, these documents may include:
Enduring power of attorney (financial)
Power of attorney for a company
Medical treatment power of attorney
Appointment of enduring guardian
Advanced healthcare directive
We also offer legal support in the event of challenges to the authority of an attorney, and applications to the Victorian Civil Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) for the appointment of administrators and guardians.
