Power of Attorney & Living Will

A sudden or age-related illness or an accident can not only lead to significant changes in the general personal lifestyle. Illness and accident can also mean that you can no longer regulate your personal affairs (legally) yourself and are dependent on the cooperation of others.

In such situations, neither the closest relative nor the spouse or partner can automatically act and decide for the affected person. Therefore, it's advisable to make provisions for these cases. This helps avoid situations where strangers are solely responsible for your wellbeing.

As notaries, we prepare individualized powers of attorney and other arrangements for these emergencies. This ensures that the given powers of attorney and additional arrangements will be effective in case of need. Various powers and orders are available:

  • general power of attorney,
  • power of attorney,
  • care directive and
  • living will.

The pension certificates are Central pension register at the Federal Chamber of Notaries in Berlin, ensuring they can be found and followed when needed. The Central Precautionary Register is queried more than 20,000 times per month by guardianship courts across Germany. More than 1.1 million precautionary documents are already registered.
