Court of ProtectionContact us for a quote
Adults who are unable to make decisions for themselves are extremely vulnerable. They may need to have someone appointed, called a deputy, to act on their behalf.
A deputy can be a family member or a friend of the individual, or a professional.
More on our Court of Protection services
The Court of Protection makes helps decisions on behalf of adults who are unable to make decisions for themselves. Those who are mentally incapacitated are very vulnerable, so it’s essential to make sure that they, and their assets, are protected. In these cases, someone can be appointed as their deputy to act on their behalf. However, it is not person incapacitated who appoints their deputy, but the Court of Protection. A deputy could be a family member, trusted friend or even a professional. A deputy makes decisions about property and finance, but also personal welfare and health treatment.
We can help you apply for a deputyship and guide you through the process of what being a deputy entails. Deputyship is for people who are already mentally incapacitated. If you wish to appoint someone to act on your behalf should you become incapacitated in the future, please see Lasting Powers of Attorney.
