Making a power of Attorney allows someone else (your “Attorney") to help you deal with your affairs or to make decisions about your affairs when you are no longer able to. Your Attorney can help with your financial affairs or your welfare or both.
If you do not grant a Power of Attorney and something happens to you, it can be very difficult for your family and friends to deal with your affairs. Sometimes it is even necessary to apply to the Court to get things done and that can be stressful and expensive.
