How can we help?
A Will is a document which sets out a person’s wishes as to the distribution of their assets on death. It allows a person to appoint an executor to distribute the assets in accordance with those wishes. Sheridan Quinn LLP can provide expert advice to ensure your affairs are in order.
It is vitally important that clients obtain professional legal advice on the drafting of their Will as it is a technical document with far reaching consequences on the surviving family.
POWERS OF ATTORNEY
A General Power of Attorney is a document which enables the Donor to give authority to another (Attorney) to act on their behalf. The scope of this power can be quite limited. This document becomes effective with immediate effect.
An Enduring Power of Attorney enables a Donor to choose an Attorney to manage their property and affairs in the event of the Donor becoming mentally incapable of doing so. The powers granted under this document may be general powers in relation to all property and affairs or may be limited in their scope at the choosing of the Donor. A Donor can also choose whether he/she wishes for the attorney(s) to be able to make personal care decisions on their behalf if/when they are unable to do so.
