How does a power of attorney get instigated for use

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? It matters because laws vary by location.

South australia

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have been taken so far?

The document is written and duly signed some time ago. Mother in law is nearly 93 but still relatively independent. Trying to set up direct debits for bills and some companies won't do this if we don't have power of attorney

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No, just what we need to do

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
