Court of Protection
Do you have concerns for a family member, friend or neighbour who you
think is having difficulties in making decisions about their finance
and property or their personal welfare? If there are concerns then they
may need someone to be appointed to make these decisions on their
As we grow older we all become concerned about our ability to effectively manage our finances and make important decisions affecting our lives. We are able to help our clients prepare for the future by preparing a document known as a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA). This document allows you to appoint someone you trust to make those decisions on your behalf, at a future time when you either no longer wish to or lack the mental capacity to make those decisions yourself. If you or a loved one has not made such arrangements and are finding it difficult to manage their affairs, we can help.
The Court of Protection (or Office of Public Guardian) is a judicial body responsible for assisting people who are deemed to lack capacity to make their own decisions on finance, property or personal welfare, so that they are not exploited or denied what is rightfully theirs. The Court of Protection also regulates those people approved and appointed to look after another person's financial affairs.
We are very experienced in dealing with a range of Court of Protection services including making an application to appoint a Deputy, registering an Enduring Power of Attorney, making a Lasting Power of Attorney and objecting to a Court of Protection application.
