Enduring Guardianship

Expertise

Enduring Guardianship Law

An Enduring Guardian is someone you choose to make personal and lifestyle decisions on your behalf when you are not capable of doing this for yourself.

If you are over 18 years of age, you can appoint a guardian. You choose which decisions you want your enduring guardian to make (known as functions), and you can give your guardian directions on how to carry out the functions.

You can give your enduring guardian as many or as few functions as you like and you may also give the guardian directions about how to exercise the decision-making functions you give them. For example you can direct your guardian to consult with your close friend on each function whenever possible. You can give your guardian a function, for example to decide where you should live and direct that they can override your objection to their decision if it is in your best interests to do so.

Most importantly, an enduring guardian cannot make a Will for you, vote on your behalf, consent to marriage, manage your finances or override your objections, if any, to medical treatment.
