How we can help you with Court of Protection and Deputyships.
There are almost one million people in the UK suffering from dementia. We understand from first-hand experience that it’s incredibly hard to see a family member struggling with memory loss.
If someone has a condition such as dementia, the painful reality is that it’s likely at some stage that they will become unable to make decisions about their own property and finances. Whilst they are able to do so they should consider making a Lasting Power of Attorney.
If they are unable to make a Lasting Power of Attorney then someone else can take on the decision-making role by becoming a Deputy. This involves making an application to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship Order.
We can help you to navigate your way through the legal process which involves a complex Court of Protection procedure so that things aren’t made even harder for you.
Once you’ve been appointed as a deputy by the Court we can give you advice about your role and can tell you what you should and shouldn’t do.
