At Blythe Liggins, we understand that caring for someone who lacks capacity and deciding what decisions should be made on their behalf and in their best interests can be very difficult. That is why our team of experts is on hand to walk you through the complex process of applying to the Court of Protection.
When an individual is unable to make decisions for themselves, it becomes necessary for those involved in their care or someone else on their behalf to take action. That is where the Court of Protection comes in, dealing with making legal decisions about the finances, personal health or welfare for individuals who lack capacity to do so for themselves.
We are also here to help you understand your ongoing role as a Court appointed deputy or to advise you if you have concerns about how a deputy is acting.
Your Blythe Liggins specialist will advise you on:
- Issues relating to mental capacity
- How to apply to the Court of Protection on behalf of an individual
- Appointing Attorneys
- Deputyship orders
- Concerns about the conduct of an attorney or deputy
- Objections to the appointment of an attorney or deputy
- The validity of Powers of Attorney forms
- Applications to the Court to make (or object to) a Will on behalf of an incapacitated person.
