Powers of Attorney & Adult Guardianship
Powers of Attorney
Whether you wish to appoint someone to deal with your affairs as a matter of convenience or in the event you become incapacitated, we can advise you on the legal implications of granting a power of attorney, and prepare the required documentation to protect your interests.
If you have been named as an attorney under a power of attorney, we can advise you of your related legal obligations.
If you wish to appoint a person to instruct health care personnel on your behalf or to act as your legal representative, or if you believe that you need to be appointed as the health care spokesman or legal representative of someone else, we can guide you through the requirements under British Columbia's adult guardianship legislation. This includes advising you of the legal implications of making or accepting such an appointment, preparation of all related documentation and representation in court, as may be required.
