FAQ

What is an Enduring Power of Attorney?

An Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) enables you to appoint someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf, particularly if you are unable to do so yourself. These legal documents can protect your best interests and ensure you and your loved ones are being looked after. You can learn more about EPAs by clicking here.

Do I need an EPA?

Yes, every Kiwi who is 18 years old and over should have their EPAs done.

How many EPAs do I need?

You need two EPAs:

  1. Enduring Power of Attorney for Personal Care and Welfare – this EPA only comes into effect if you become ‘mentally incapable’ and enables your attorney to make medical or other related decisions about your care and welfare.

  2. Enduring Power of Attorney for Property – this EPA can come into effect before you become ‘mentally incapable’, and can cover a select number of things you own or everything you own.

Do I need to purchase both EPAs?

Yes, you need to purchase both. You’ll need to do each one separately, as there are different questions you need to answer for each one. You will need to click on both ‘Buy’ buttons below to complete both EPAs.

What is the process for doing an online EPA?

Once you press the buy button, a clever Legal Bot will ask you questions here on our website. Once you’ve answered the questions, the Legal Bot will create your EPA based on your answers. The entire process is automated for your convenience - do it when and where it suits you!

How long will the online interview take?

It will take you approximately 20 - 30 minutes to complete the interviews for both EPAs.

What if I don’t know how to answer a question?

You can contact us by phone on +64 9 272 0002 or email at lawhelp@dawsons.kiwi.nz.

What do I do once I’ve finished the questions?

Once you are finished, your EPAs will be sent straight to the Dawsons team. We’ll contact you shortly after to organise a convenient time for you to sign your EPAs. It is important to note that your EPAs will not be legally valid unless they are certified by a lawyer.
