The Court of Protection is a specialist court that makes decisions, and appoints Deputies, to act on behalf of people who are unable to make decisions about their personal health, finance or welfare.
If someone can no longer manage their affairs and has not set up a Lasting Power of Attorney to enable someone else to make decisions on their behalf, an application to the Court of Protection might be needed to appoint a Deputy to manage their affairs generally, or to make a decision on a specific issue.
It is also sometimes necessary to make applications to the Court of Protection to resolve contentious or complex issues even when a Lasting Power of Attorney is already in place.
These applications are often complex and time consuming at a time when you least need it. Our team offers friendly and efficient support during these difficult times.
