Do I need Power of Attorney for my child?
Hi everybody, my name is Toni and we have a beautiful daughter Millie who has just turned 18, she has Phelan McDermid Syndrome, diagnosed at 14 months, non verbal, still in nappies walks a little but does use a wheelchair, severe learning difficulties. Went to her christmas party at school and a parent mentioned Power of Attorney!!!!! omg, help please, didnt even think of it, did some research and we have to go through court because she has no mental capacity, has anybody else had to do this, we will have to pay £400 per application, we need the two, thats £800!!!!! plus other costs annually, we are on a low income and im terrified that we will no longer be "in charge" of our daughter if anything were t happen.
