You can appoint Peter as your attorney for property and/or personal care and welfare. There are many different ways we can do this and we can discuss this thoroughly before you make up your mind. You need to be mentally capable to make an EPOA.
Your EPOA for property can be activated by you at the time you make it or, by a doctor or the court if and when you become mentally incapable due to an accident, illness or other cause. You can appoint Peter, and another person jointly if you wish. You can also appoint a successor attorney who could act for you if we were unable to for any reason.
Only a doctor or the court can activate your EPOA for Care and Welfare; it can only be activated if and when you become mentally incapable, for example because of an accident or illness. You can also appoint a successor attorney who could act for you if we were unable to for any reason.
If you would like to consider appointing Peter, we would meet together to ascertain your wishes now and into your future.
