An enduring power of attorney (EPA) is a legal document which sets out who can take care of your personal or financial matters if you can't. That person is called your attorney.
You can set up an enduring power of attorney through a lawyer or trustee corporation. You don’t need to go through the Family Court to set it up but the Family Court gets involved if any issues need to be sorted out.
