1. What you need to know

If an attorney wishes to withdraw from their role, in circumstances where the principal has impaired capacity, the attorney must submit an application to QCAT. The Tribunal may give the attorney permission to resign. Only when this permission is given does the appointment and the responsibilities of an attorney finish.
