The Court of Protection / Deputyship Application
If, for example, you care for your adult child or family member, you will likely need access to information regarding their finances or the power to deal with their assets. If the person that you care for lacks capacity as per the Mental Capacity Act 2005, you may want to consider making an application to the Court of Protection to be appointed a deputy.
The Court of Protection has the power to make an order appointing a deputy to deal with the property and financial affairs or health and welfare of a person who lacks capacity. Our Probate Department are able to advise and assist with making a deputyship application for property and financial affairs to the Court of Protection.
As with any matters that are dealt with by the Courts, there is a very specific process which needs to be followed. Our solicitors will help manage and guide you through the process.
If you have any questions regarding making an application to the Court of Protection please do not hesitate to contact our team by emailing email@example.com or calling us on 020 3440 8000.
