A Probate Lawyer will tell you that the important difference between an enduring guardian and power of attorney is that the enduring guardian is granted the power to make personal decisions on the donor’s behalf whereas a power of attorney is usually limited to financial decisions only. An enduring guardian is appointed by way of appointment. Speak to one of our Probate Lawyers or Estate Solicitors if you intend to appoint an enduring guardian or are asked to be an enduring guardian.
In New South Wales, an enduring guardian will usually be granted the power to make lifestyle decisions, such as the medical care the donor is to receive, where the donor is to live and what kind of personal services the donor is to receive.
The appointment of the enduring guardian takes effect after the donor loses the capacity to make their own decisions. Just with a power of attorney, it is a powerful legal instrument and you should consult one of our Probate Lawyers or Estates Solicitors for comprehensive legal advice if you intend to appoint an enduring guardian or are requested to act as an enduring guardian. Further to offering the ability to prepare an enduring guardianship form on your behalf, we also offer free and secure storage of wills, powers of attorney and enduring guardianships.
