Last week, the Qld parliament finally passed the long-awaited amendments to the Guardianship & Administration Act, Powers of Attorney Act and Public Guardian Act.

Now it just remains for the amendment Act to be proclaimed.

Will it mean a lot of changes? For practitioners and stake-holders in the area of guardianship and administration, elder law, and succession law, the new legislation will be a  ‘must read’.

The changes represent a continuing effort on the part of the Queensland government to maximise the autonomy of vulnerable adults while ,at the same time, trying to ensure there is a robust and responsive system of protection in place.

The changes may well make for demands on already tight resourcing for the Public Guardian, Public Trustee and QCAT.

Watch this space for more information about the changes.
