Can someone have multiple attorneys or deputies?
When multiple attorneys or deputies are appointed to make decisions on behalf of someone else, they are either appointed 'jointly' or 'jointly and severally'. If the documentation does not specify which one they are, they will be treated as they have been appointed 'jointly'.
- Joint attorneys must all act and make decisions together. A signature from all the attorneys would be required on paperwork for any decisions made.
- Joint and several attorneys can make decisions independently of each other.
