How to make a Power of Attorney

A private lawyer can prepare a power of attorney or enduring power of attorney, or you can buy blank forms from Service SA.

However the preparation and use of the forms can be complex and it is wise to seek legal advice before using them.

Alternatively, the Legal Services Commission and the Office of the Public Advocate have produced a do-it-yourself Enduring Power of Attorney Kitwhich provides all the necessary forms, answers common questions regarding enduring powers of attorney and shows how to fill out the forms. The Kit is available to purchase from any Legal Services Commission SA office.

The Alliance for Prevention of Elder Abuse also has a pamphlet entitled, Appointing an Enduring Power of Attorney.
