Has someone you care about lost their ability to make decisions about their property or personal welfare and do not have Powers of Attorney in place? Are you concerned that an Attorney for a family member is not acting in the best interests of this person? Are you wondering what can be done by the Court to help?

Family Lawyer Shaun Cousins is holding a free seminar to discuss disputes about Powers of Attorney, applying to the Family Court for personal orders and to answer your questions.

The goal is to provide information and an overview about the Family Court and Power of Attorney related matters, including:

  • What happens when someone loses mental capacity and does not have Powers of Attorney in place?
  • What can be done when an Attorney is not acting in the best interests of the person for whom he or she holds Powers of Attorney for?
  • What is involved with reviewing current personal orders?
  • Can Powers of Attorney be cancelled and how is this done?
  • What happens if you are an Attorney and you are not sure of the best decision to make?
  • Can Powers of Attorney and personal orders be varied?

There will also be a forum to answer any questions you might have about these issues and how you can get the best results for the person who needs help.

Bring any questions or issues you have regarding Power of Attorney disputes and personal orders if you want to know more.

When:             Tuesday, 25 February 2020
