When can my appointed Attorney start making decisions?

15 November 2023

You can choose when your attorney’s powers start. For example, in Victoria, under an enduring power of attorney, you can choose whether your attorney can use the powers you give them straight away, when you are not able to make decisions for yourself, or from a particular time, circumstance or occasion. An attorney must act in line with your directions.
