Court of Protection

It is not always possible to have in place a power of attorney, particularly if incapacity, through an accident or a stroke for example, is a sudden occurrence. In these circumstances the relatives of the person will normally need to make an application to the Court of Protection, so that arrangements can be made to manage the person’s financial affairs.

The court has the power to appoint a ‘deputy’ who, similar to an attorney under a power of attorney, will have power to manage that person’s affairs.

The application process, and the ongoing duties of a deputy, can be challenging, but with our advice and assistance we can make sure that the legal formalities are dealt with and that you fully understand what steps need to be taken.
