Special Powers of Attorney, Notarial Services and Consular Services during the Pandemic

Special Powers of Attorney, Notarial Services and Consular Services during the Pandemic


Some activities were put on hold during the Covid-19 pandemic. There are restrictions in place in terms of gatherings and wearing of personal protective equipment such as facial masks and shields. However, there are legal matters that simply cannot wait and still had to be taken care of urgently.

In AJ Law LLP, we have a Filipino Lawyer who remains to have an active license to practice law in the Philippines and who can still render legal advice to Filipinos who are currently in need of the same. If you have a legal matter that has to be resolved in the Philippines like transferring and conveying real properties back home, you can very well consult with us.


AJ Law LLP drafts Special Powers of Attorney (SPA) to suit your legal needs. A SPA is a legal document that appoints a specific representative (also known as the agent or attorney-in-fact) assigned to act on behalf of another individual who will be called the principal. The circumstances in which the attorney-in-fact can act on behalf of the principal will be specifically laid out in the provisions of the SPA.

SPA is also referred to a Limited Power of Attorney


A SPA is also referred to a Limited Power of Attorney considering that the attorney-in-fact is merely sanctioned to execute detailed activities on behalf of the principal. It is significant to note that a SPA will authorize the attorney-in-fact to take legal steps and decide on behalf of the principal.


Considering the current Covid-19 situation, we have streamlined the way we extend our services to our clients who need to execute and send their SPAs to the Philippines. We offer drafting of said SPA, processing in the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services – Official Documents Services, as well as booking an appointment at the Philippine Consulate General Toronto on your behalf.


AJ Law LLP’s office is located in the same building as the Philippine Consulate General which makes it very convenient for our clients to find us and let us help them regarding this service.
