Incapacity planning involves developing precautionary planning documents to be prepared for temporary or permanent incapacity. This includes designating someone you trust to take care of your financial, legal or health care decisions on your behalf, should you become unable to do so. This type of planning is important as it ensures your wishes will be respected and actioned in the manner you deem appropriate. Without the proper documents in place, the court has the power to intervene and should that happen it may make decisions that you would not agree with or that do not represent your preferences.
Our lawyers can assist in developing plans/documents that will support your wishes including:
- Enduring Power of Attorney;
- Representation Agreement; and
- Advance Directive.
