How do I register an Enduring Guardianship?

If you prepare an enduring guardianship document with the Public Trustee, we can assist you with witnessing the documents, but you are required to register your own document, so it has legal effect. the document can be registered at Service Tasmania for a fee.

There are strict requirements for the witnessing of an enduring guardianship. The must be 2 witnesses over 18 years of age and must not be related to you or to your guardians. Instruments of appointment that are not appropriately witnessed may be rejected for registration or invalidated after a review by the Tasmanian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (the Tribunal).

Your guardian must have signed the instrument to indicate that he or she accepts appointment as your guardian.

Upon registration, the Tribunal will return copies of the instrument to you. You should provide a copy to your guardian(s), your care providers and to your medical practitioner.
