Deputyship and Court of Protection matters

It’s a sad fact that more and more people are losing the ability to manage their own lives. When this happens, the court of protection has overall jurisdiction to look after the interests of the vulnerable person.

If loved ones hold enduring or lasting powers of attorney, the court of protection need to be notified when the person who appointed the attorney loses their mental capacity. If they haven’t appointed an attorney, then a family member may have to apply to the court to be appointed the deputy so they can manage the vulnerable person’s finances.In either case, other applications to the court may be necessary if difficult decisions need to be taken with the court’s blessing. In all cases, the application process is a formal one. You can call on our experience in these areas to guide you through the processes in a sensitive but proactive way.
