In Victoria there are four different types of Power of Attorney, and our Power of Attorney kit helps you:
This is often called a "General Financial" power, because people often use it to get someone to take care of financial matters for them
This is different from a General power in one very important way - it "endures" even if you become mentally incapable of managing your own affairs. Elderly people often use this type if they worry about being incapacitated by stroke or Alzheimers, or some other illness. It can also be very useful to young people, if they (say) go into a coma after a sporting or road accident.
This authorises someone to make decisions about your medical treatment after you lose the mental capacity to make such decisions yourself.
This is not called a Power of Attorney but it works like one. It was introduced by Victoria in 1999 and it allows you to appoint a guardian who can make decisions that affect your lifestyle - where you live etc. It also allows your guardian to make medical treatment decisions if you do not also have an Enduring Power of Attorney (Medical Treatment).
The Power of Attorney Kit shows you how to make and use all these types, and includes:
This low-cost easy-to-use Kit could save you around $200 per Power of Attorney, but it does more than that. It also gives you a good understanding of what Power of Attorney is all about, and that could prove valuable.
Note that our Kit is designed for use in Victoria Australia.
Please note though that we don't have an advisory service to deal with questions about the use of Powers of Attorney.
