Power of Attorney
Our lawyers and solicitors can help you to prepare a power of attorney. A power of attorney is a document prepared by a lawyer which allows you to appoint a person you trust to make important decisions for you either now or in the future. Our lawyers and solicitors can advise you about the benefit of a power of attorney and can prepare one for you which is suited to your own circumstances. We can see you at our offices in Motherwell, Hamilton, Cumbernauld or Airdrie or at your home in certain circumstances. We are a long-established firm and are proud to represent clients throughout Lanarkshire including Motherwell, Bellshill, Airdrie, Coatbridge, Wishaw, Cumbernauld and Hamilton.
A power of attorney can be used to give someone authority to make decisions for you immediately or, alternatively, to allow them to make those decisions in the future if you become medically unfit to make them for yourself. It can also grant a range of powers depending on your circumstances and can include financial powers as well welfare powers. Your lawyer will be able to advise you further about the range of powers covered by a power of attorney.
Once the power of attorney has been registered, we can also provide you with the registered document as well as a copy certified by a notary public. Our experience in preparing powers of attorney have helped us develop an excellent reputation with our clients in Motherwell, Airdrie, Coatbridge, Cumbernauld, Wishaw, Bellshill, Hamilton and throughout Lanarkshire.
Legal aid can be available to cover the cost of obtaining a power of attorney depending upon your financial circumstances. Only lawyers can offer legal aid and our lawyers will be able to advise you whether you qualify for legal aid taking into account your income and any savings you may have.
