For many couples today, cohabiting is commonplace, either before or instead of traditional marriage.

What is a Power of Attorney and why do I need one?
A Power of Attorney is a written, legal document giving someone else permission to take actions or make decisions on your behalf, whilst you are still alive. You choose the person you want to act as your Attorney and what powers you want the Attorney to have.
A Power of Attorney (POA) is intended to ensure that your financial affairs and personal welfare can still be dealt with and protected in the event of you being unable to act on your own behalf. It is something often associated with the elderly and young people may ask – why would I need a power of attorney? However nobody knows what is round the corner.
