Our Court of Protection Solicitors are dedicated to ensuring your loved ones’ best interests are protected when they can no longer make important decisions themselves.

Sometimes, friends and family members lose the mental capacity to make important decisions about their finances and welfare. In these situations, it is important that their best interests are upheld; this is where the Court of Protection can help
 

What we do and where we specialise

What Is The Court Of Protection?
The Court of Protection helps people who don’t have the mental capacity to manage their own affairs. It has the power to make decisions for people about their money, property, health or welfare.

The Court can also give these powers to someone else like a relative or close friend who can manage their loved one’s affairs. This usually happens if there is a need to make decisions on a long term basis.
If the Court gives these powers to someone else, they are called a Deputy. 
 

How Do I Apply To The Court Of Protection?
You can apply to the Court of Protection for permission to make decisions for a loved one if they lose the ability to make their own.

To apply, you’ll need to fill out a minimum of four forms and provide a doctor’s certificate. This certificate needs to confirm to the Court that the person can’t make their own decisions.

In some cases you may need to fill out an extra form, depending on what powers you’re applying for.
You might only need the power to make financial decisions for your loved one. You could also choose to only make decisions on the treatment they receive in hospital
