Court of Protection Applications

If an individual loses mental capacity and there isn’t a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) in place, you may need to make an application to the Court of Protection to make decisions on their behalf. It is important that you seek legal help or representation when making an application to ensure that you are able to provide the right support for your loved one.

If you need to make an application, you are already involved in an application, our friendly and knowledgeable experts are here to help guide you through the process.

The applications may include:

  • Making a gift
  • Making a statutory will
  • Making decisions about health or welfare
  • Contesting a deputy or attorney’s appointment
  • Bringing or defending a legal claim

To find out how we can help with your application to the Court of Protection, contact us today by calling 0345 872 6666. Alternatively, complete our online enquiry form and we will get back to you.
