Court of Protection

Our Court of Protection solicitors can help in instances where the person you care for no longer understands what it means to appoint a Power of Attorney. In this instance, you might need to consider applying to the Court of Protection in order to be granted permission to make decisions on their behalf as a Deputy.


What can a Deputy do?

The role of a Deputy is similar to that of a Power of Attorney. The main difference is that a Deputy is supervised by the Office of the Public Guardian. Any concerns with the appointment of the Deputy, is referred to the Court of Protection for resolution.

The Mental Capacity Act came into force on 1st October 2007 changing the status of the Court of Protection. The Court of Protection exists to follow the statutory framework of the Act in order to safeguard vulnerable people who lack the mental capacity to make decisions for themselves.
