If someone you care for becomes incapable of dealing with their affairs and they have not made a Lasting Power of Attorney, an application must be made to the Court of Protection for appointment of a "Deputy" to manage that person's property and financial affairs and/or make personal welfare decisions.
The process of applying for a Deputyship Order can be time-consuming and confusing. Steeles Law can assist you with all aspects of the Deputyship, including:
- ascertaining the person's property and income
- completing the application forms and arranging the medical certificate
- implementing the Order, and notifying all relevant institutions and authorities
- making applications for special directions
- completing the required annual Deputyship report
