Court of Protection Deputyship Application Lawyers
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is chosen and appointed by someone who has mental capacity. Once an individual has lost mental capacity, they can no longer appoint a Lasting Power of Attorney to act on their behalf. Without LPA in place, it can be extremely difficult and frustrating for family members to make decisions their loved ones can no longer make for themselves.
In such circumstances, you can apply to the Court of Protection to appoint you as a Deputy. This will give you the legal authority to act in your loved one’s best interest and manage their affairs. Our lawyers will help you with your deputyship application.
Simple & easy deputyship application process
Applying to become a Deputy can be a complex and intimidating process. Our experienced solicitors are here to make things as straightforward as possible and ensure everything progresses smoothly. We can support you through the application process or, if you’d prefer, can apply on your behalf. Our solicitors can also act as a professional Deputy on behalf of the person who lacks capacity. Whatever you decide, our friendly team are here to assist and help you move forward.
