EPA Ireland, how we can help
Tormeys Solicitors deal with Enduring Power of Attorney legal documents on a regular basis, and know that it can be an emotional time for both parties. It is with this in mind that we approach each and every case with a fresh set of eyes. Realising that every case is different is integral to understanding the necessities of the individuals involved.
Under normal circumstances when an individual loses mental capacity and the ability to make decisions, their assets are frozen. This would include any cash, savings or property, meaning family members would not have access to your assets to pay for your healthcare or bills. At what is already an emotional time for family, this can bring financial strain and feelings of guilt at not being able to care for you in the way they would like. It can also result in lengthy court appearances and mounting legal fees should a family member need to apply to make you a ward of the court.
