Incapacity Arrangements

Making personal decisions about money, property and welfare is part of everyday life. When a loved one loses physical or mental capacity, there is a real risk that their way of life, long-term wishes, and best interests could fall by the wayside.  They could also be deprived of their liberty.

These are sensitive, often complex, situations.  We can help clients and their families get the right arrangements in place before there is a problem.  

If however an issue does arise, we can advise on an application to the Court of Protection or to the Office of the Public Guardian to oversee the care or the affairs and welfare of someone who, for whatever reason, has lost the ability to do this for themselves.  This may be done through deputies, who are trusted people appointed by the Court.   We can advise on your choice of deputy and work through the process of their appointment, setting the framework for their duties.

We also support deputies who need a helping hand in dealing with a mentally incapacitated person’s affairs and welfare.
