Power of attorney - what happens if it's processed in time?
I am in the process of doing the paperwork, but I have seen they can take 6 months. I have to have an operation soon and I am really concerned that the paperwork will not come back in time for the op. Will it still be valid? Is there anything I can do? I need to make sure that my partner has access to my (separate) bank account whilst I am in hospital as he will be looking after my daughter - would a temporary mandate be enough for this? and what about any health choices whilst I am incapacitated? He is named next of kin anyway.
