When we are informed that an individual requires help in managing their own affairs we will meet with that person and, if necessary, family members, to discuss more comprehensively how we can help them to move forward.
If no Power of Attorney is in place then it will be necessary to apply to the Court of Protection for a “Deputy” to be appointed for the person who lacks capacity. If an application is granted the Deputy then becomes responsible for the management of the incapacitated person’s affairs, subject to the requirements of the Court of Protection and the Mental Capacity Act 2005.
We can assist you in considering whether an application for Deputyship is appropriate, and if you decide to proceed we can help you through the process.
