This workshop will focus on two very important questions about Power of Attorney for Property (POA-P): Who should I choose as my Attorney for Property?    and  What are my responsibilties if I become an Attorney for Property?
A POA-P is an important legal document and there are many things to consider before you ask someone to be your attorney, or before you agree to become an attorney.  To be discussed in this workshop:

  • some of the common pitfalls that can lead to allegations of financial abuse and ways to protect yourself
  • the requirements for creating a POA-P and why it is important to think about the future even, if you are in perfect health
