Heacham solicitors to hold free legal advice day
Heacham's branch of Ward Gethin Archer solicitors will be holding a free legal advice day next week for anyone who wishes to learn more about family law, wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney.
An expert team of lawyers will be on hand on Friday, March 22, at Chancery House, 8 High Street, to offer legal advice on a wide range of issues.
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) allows someone to grant a person legal authority to look after their affairs and make decisions about finances, property and healthcare.
James Macwhirter, wills and probate solicitor at WGA’s Heacham office said: “We often think it is only towards the end of our life that we may not be able to look after our own affairs. Unfortunately, at any age unexpected things can happen such as an accident or illness, which can make us unable to make our own decisions.
"In these circumstances, without a LPA, your assets may be effectively “frozen” and someone may have to be appointed to deal with your affairs, which can be costly. Anyone over the age of 18 can have an LPA."
Advice will also be available on wills and director and family solicitor, Sarah Fairbrother will be on hand to answer questions on any family matters.
She said: “On the day you can ask questions about separation, divorce, arrangements for children and cohabitation agreements. Perhaps you are a couple who live together and have not entered into any formal arrangements as to your relationship or you need help with planning ahead with pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements. Whatever family legal issue you are facing, I can help.”
