Lasting Powers of Attorney
Client gives another person, even spouse, the right to look after their Welfare and Finances. Each person needs two.
If you are terminally or seriously ill, this is the legal way to state your wishes for the type of treatments you do, or do not want, eg nutrition to extend life while in a vegetative state. Goes hand in glove with the LPA’s.
Business Lasting Powers of Attorney
Business owners of any kind need to set up someone to run their business financial affairs in case they lose capacity. Frequently, by accident, this is left in an LPA to the spouse who may not be appropriate. They may not be capable and my be in a position to override any remaining partners or shareholders.
