Deputyship Orders

 

 

 

These are necessary where your next of kin or family member has lost capacity and are no longer able to appoint someone to attend their affairs under a Lasting Power of Attorney. If there is not a Lasting Power of Attorney in place and a person lacks capacity to manage their own affairs then a Deputyship Order is the last resort and an application has to be made.

The process of making an application is a long one. All of the necessary documentation has to be prepared then submitted to the Court of Protection with proof of the relevant person’s lack of capacity to handle their own affairs.

Our experts have wide experience of dealing with such deputyship applications and can provide the necessary guidance and assistance to achieve a successful outcome at what can be a difficult and stressful time.
