Michael Monahan Solicitor Blog
by Monahan Solicitors
3M ago
The Power of a Caveat Contemplating a challenge to a Will? One of your first steps should be considering a caveat.

This is a crucial document that confirms the executors’ authority to manage the deceased’s affairs. A caveat effectively puts this process on hold for six months, giving you time to strengthen your case. This p ..read more

An EPA not only covers financial matters but also empowers the chosen Attorney to make decisions regarding the personal care of the individual (referred to as the Donor) when they’re unable to do so themselves. These decisions can range from determining the Donor’s living arrangements to who they interact with and the ..read more
