Court of Protection

If you have a loved one who is unable to manage their affairs, the Court of Protection could be the only course you have to make sure the right decisions are made on their behalf.

A person may lose the mental capacity to manage their own affairs because they have been involved in a car crash and have a brain injury, or because they have a condition such as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, or perhaps because they have a birth condition, such as cerebral palsy.

In each of these cases, the Court of Protection will look to appoint a Deputy to manage a person’s financial affairs and/or health and welfare issues but the process for becoming a Deputy is difficult, complex and fraught with tough decisions.

We have an experienced team in place to guide you through this challenging process, making it straightforward and easy to understand. Any one of the Partners here at Scott Richards can even act as a Deputy if there is no one else suitable or available.

We understand how difficult going through the Court of Protection is for family and loved ones – we focus on your needs and will do all we can to make it as stress-free as possible.
