Deputyships and the Court of Protection

Website Legal Audit

The Court of Protection is there to protect individuals who cannot make decisions for themselves because they lack the mental capacity to do so.

The Court has the power to appoint someone (a ‘Deputy’) to look after your financial or health affairs, or both.

The Court can also approve applications to use your resources for tax planning purposes, or to put a new Will in place for you where doing so would be in your best interests.

Our expert team understands the impact that losing your ability to make decisions for yourself will have on your family and aims to guide you and your family through the complex and time-consuming Court of Protection procedures in a practical and straightforward manner.
