Court of Protection

Everyone’s worst fear is that they or a loved one becomes incapable of managing their own affairs.

This could be, for example, because of a head injury, brain damage at birth, an accident, or sadly dementia caused by old age.

In circumstances such as this, the appointment of a Deputy by the Court of Protection can be a solution to the problem in relation to the management of your affairs.

The appointment of a professional deputy by the court of protection is often possible, whereby a trained and experienced professional is placed at your disposal to assist in the management of your property and affairs. Alternatively, if a trusted relative wished to become a Deputy, we can assist with the appointment.
