Court of Protection
Court Of Protection and Deputyship Deputyship is used if a person has already lost mental capacity, whether this be through alzheimers, dementia, stroke, serious illness or an accident.
An application is made to the Court of Protection to appoint a deputy who will then have the ability to make decisions on that person’s behalf.
The process can be longer than applying for an LPA and does have an annual ongoing commitment to report to the Court every year.
This can be daunting and is often at an already difficult time.
We have a team who can support you through the application process and assist you once you are appointed.
