Powers of Attorney
Powers of Attorney allow other people to make decisions and do certain things on your behalf while you are still alive. This might be because you are overseas, or because you no longer have the capacity to do it yourself. This can cover making decisions about your medical care, dealing with your property and even day-to-day things like operating bank accounts and paying bills.
In Victoria you can also have a Supportive Power of Attorney. This means someone can be appointed to help you do legal and administrative tasks, such as obtaining information and making decisions. This is useful for people who have decision making power but need help to exercise that power.
