Attestation of agreements on assistance in making decisions

Capable adult natural person may conclude an agreement in writing with another capable adult natural person, whom he/she trust, on assistance in making decisions in certain areas of life. The agreement on assistance in making decisions may be concluded when a person, due to mental or behaviour disorder or any other circumstances (age, disease, etc.), finds it difficult to make decisions, which would serve his/her interests best. Natural person who is incapacitated in a certain area or has limited capacity in a certain area can conclude the agreement on assistance in making decisions in areas in which he/she is capable.

Agreements on assistance in making decisions must be prepared in a notarial form and can be found in the Register of Legally Incapable Persons and Persons with Limited Legal Capacity. The agreement on assistance in making decisions can be used against third parties and have legal consequences only if it is registered in the Register of Legally Incapable Persons and Persons with Limited Legal Capacity.

A person providing assistance must avoid the conflict of interests between him/her and assisted person. The activity of persons providing assistance is supervised and controlled by guardianship and care institutions.

The decisions of a person who concluded an agreement on assistance in making decisions are personal decisions. Liability for the decisions of a person who concluded an agreement on assistance in making decisions and actions taken on the basis of such decisions lies with the person who made the decisions.

Any party to the agreement on assistance in making decisions may refer to the notary and submit a statement on termination of the agreement. Upon certification of a statement on termination of an agreement on assistance in making decisions, the notary shall provide to the Register of Legally Incapable Persons and Persons with Limited Legal Capacity data necessary for registration of a fact of termination of this agreement.
