If you end up in the horrible situation of not being able to make decisions for yourself because of not having the capacity to do so, but there isn’t an attorney in place, it can be really difficult.
We are here to help you.
What is the Court of Protection?
The Court of Protection is the legal group which is there to protect people who can’t make decisions for themselves because they don’t have the capacity to do so. The Court has the power to assign somebody (a ‘Deputy’) to look after someone’s financial or health needs, or both.
