How to stop the Court freezing access to your assets at the time you need them the most!

Sometimes, either through illness or accident it happens that one of you, husband or wife, is for whatever reason suddenly lacking in the mental capacity to make decisions about your own money and property.

And if you haven’t made arrangements to have what’s called lasting power of attorney you have to go through a sometimes long and always expensive legal process in order to get a judge to give you access to the money… at the very time you need it the most. At times like this, we find not only are the victims of this situation emotionally distraught at what’s happening to their loved one, but they’re also plunged into poverty having to borrow money from friends and relatives while they fight for access through the courts.

And because this is all going to be decided by a Judge, there’s always that lingering doubt that he or she might refuse to grant you power of attorney. It does happen… and it’s so easily avoided, just by having a lasting power of attorney addition made to your Will.

Just click the “play” button on this short video, and I’ll explain it all, and show how easy it’s going to be for you to ensure this never happens to you or your spouse.
