What is the Court of Protection?
The Court of Protection is there to protect the interests of those who are unable to make decisions about their finances, health or welfare and it could be a temporary or permanent condition.
Although we would always advise that people plan ahead and put in place a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) for situations such as this, we appreciate that this is not always possible and that’s why we are here to help you resolve any issues.
If a relative or loved one is no longer able to manage their affairs, we can help you to make an application to the Court of Protection.
If there is no valid power of attorney in place then the Court of Protection will make a decision to appoint a deputy to manage a person’s welfare, property and financial affairs when that person no longer has the mental capacity to make these decisions for themselves.
The person appointed can be a relative, friend or someone professionally appointed, such as a solicitor. It is the duty of a deputy to always act in the best interests of the incapacitated person, making sure that all decisions made are for their benefit.
Looking after an incapacitated loved one’s finances can be extremely demanding and time-consuming. If you prefer not to manage it yourself, our experienced solicitors can act as their professional deputy, allowing you to concentrate on providing them with love and care.
We can offer the following range of services to help:
- Applications to the Court of Protection for close family members or friends to become a legal deputy.
- Legal support and expert dispute resolution with contested deputyship applications.
- Professional deputyship, where we act with care to manage the financial affairs of a loved one.
- Other specific applications to the Court of Protection.
