Secure your interests or those of a loved one in the event of incapacity or illness
We have an ageing population with increased life expectancy but unfortunately that means many of us may, at some point in our lives, suffer from some form of incapacity which affects our ability to conduct our own affairs. Many people think that in such situations their next of kin can make these decisions for them, this is not legally correct.
Let us prepare for you a Power of Attorney whereby in the event of your incapacity the person most trusted by you makes those decisions for you. Better to have it and not need it as to need it and not have it.
If you have a loved one who is incapacitated and unable to make decisions about their personal care and finances and you would like to be able to make these decisions for them, you will need to apply to the Court to be appointed as their Welfare and Financial Guardian. At Lanarkshire Law Practice we have considerable experience in making these applications.
Living Will (Advanced Directive) – If you want your relatives or medical professionals to know your wishes about medical intervention in the event of your illness and inability to express your view, then we can make a living will for you.
