Court of Protection

If someone lacks the capacity to make their own decisions due to illness or an accident, then someone else needs to make those decisions for them if there is no LPA or EPA already created. An application will need to be made to the Court of Protection for someone to be appointed a Deputy.

If someone lacks the capacity to make their own decisions due to illness or an accident, then someone else needs to make those decisions for them if there is no LPA or EPA already created. An application will need to be made to the Court of Protection for someone to be appointed a Deputy.

There are two types of Deputy (although one person could be appointed to both roles):

  • A property and affairs deputy looks after someone’s financial affairs
  • A health and welfare deputy to manage decisions about the care or medical treatment that the person receives.

Our team at Clark Willis can assist with:

  • Deputyship applications
  • General Court of Protection Applications
  • Advice to Deputies on their duties and management of their powers

“Absolutely fantastic service throughout. Friendly and efficient staff and would recommend over and over again for all Law requirements.”

Mrs W, Darlington
