The Court of Protection– Deputies

Where a person is unable to create a Lasting Power of Attorney due to the fact that they no longer are able to understand the nature and implications of a legal document, an application may be made to the Court of Protection for the appointment of a Deputy. The Deputy appointed by the Court will then have the necessary powers to act on behalf of the person concerned. The Court will issue an Order setting out the extent of the Deputy’s powers. The powers may relate to financial matters or personal welfare issues. The powers granted will depend upon the needs of the person concerned.

We can advise you on all aspects of Court of Protection applications and prepare the necessary application papers on your behalf.
