An LPA is a legal document that allows another person to make decisions about your wellbeing and affairs on your behalf. Appointing an attorney before you actually need one gives you the peace of mind that your affairs will be managed how you want them to be. It’s not possible to create an LPA once you’re unable to make your own decisions so if you think you would like an LPA; it’s something that should consider putting in place as soon as possible.
There are different types of LPAs depending on what areas of your life you would like an attorney to have control of. One for protecting your health and welfare decisions and one for your financial decisions. To be valid, an LPA must be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian.
