The Court of Protection deals with issues concerning people who may not have the mental capacity to make decisions for themselves.
Sometimes, disputes for or in respect of people lacking capacity can come before the Court of Protection.
We can assist with proceedings, whether it relates to making an application to the court that may cause a dispute with a family or to oppose an application that is not considered to be in the best interests of the individual concerned.
Some examples of our recent Court of Protection work include:
✓a challenge against a local authority’s decision to deprive an elderly lady of her liberty.
✓a dispute concerning whether a disabled child has capacity.
✓a dispute concerning where an elderly lady should reside.
✓an application to appoint a family member as deputy over his mother’s estate.
