If a friend or a relative has lost mental capacity, you may need to apply to the Court of Protection for a deputy to be appointed to manage their affairs. These decisions are for issues involving the person’s property, financial affairs, health and personal welfare. 

 

The importance of Court of Protection

It is the responsibility of the Court of Protection to make important decisions – such as those relating to the management of finances – for people lacking the mental capacity to make these decisions themselves. It is imperative that a person’s best interests are always put first. We understand the importance of safeguarding financial affairs effectively, and our expert team is highly experienced in ensuring our clients’ welfare is always protected.
